The game has missed Dutch legend Arjen Robben, and Arjen Robben has even missed the game even more.

After a stellar career with PSV, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, Robben decided to call time on his career at the end of last season, as he played his last game of his career at the age of 35.

Robben had a very successful career as he won league titles in Netherlands, England, Spain and Germany, but the 36-year-old has admitted that he’s considering a return to football.

“In the beginning I didn’t miss football at all,” he told the FC Bayern Podcast.

“But then there was a phase when it tickled again and I had thoughts such as: ‘Hey, maybe I would like to play a little again.’

“From time to time I still have this feeling. With this virus, it is a very strange time for everyone and when football returns, then now! But maybe it always stays a bit in there. I’m just an athlete.”

Robben admitted that his children have been occupying his time since his retirement as he missed a lot of games.

“I missed a lot of games, I was just busy. I’ve never been able to plan anything privately,” he said.

“When you’re retired, nobody is waiting for you but you need something that is worth getting up for. In my case, that is my children.”

Robben revealed that he hasn’t decided what yet he’d do with his career after retirement.

“I have nothing specific in mind,” he added.
