After training with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich this week, Arjen Robben has he is undecided about coming out of retirement.
The Dutchman hung up his boots at the end of the 2018/2019 season after a successful career with the likes of PSV Eindhoven, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
It has now been revealed that the 36-year-old trained with the Bundesliga leaders this week, although he is not thinking about playing for the club again.
"I have to disappoint you. My comeback at Bayern is a hundred percent impossible," Robben told Sport1.
When asked if could return to professional football, he said, "You never know. I don't want to say yes or no now.
"For me and my family, the move to Holland is due at the end of the month. We'll see everything else. In any case, I will always stay connected to Bayern.
"I train two to three times a week with head of fitness Dr. Holger Broich and I would like to continue doing so. We do runs, sprints and also work with the ball. I really enjoy it and I want to stay fit. I am very grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to do this training. In the past few months, however, I have always been seen at Bayern's training centre.
"My fitness levels are very good. Staying fit after retirement is very important to me. I also wanted to run a marathon this year, which unfortunately did not work due to the coronavirus crisis. As far as I can tell, I haven't put on weight yet. So everything is fine with me.
"I feel very good at the moment. I also notice clearly that pressure has dropped from me.
"There are days when I train very intensively in my free time. If it starts to hurt in the body, I give myself a break and only train again when I am free of pain. This is definitely a difference from my playing career."
