Robben said, “I am just happy to be playing again and I enjoyed every minute and it is special for me to play against my old club tonight. It is the first time that such a thing has happened to me since I started playing football abroad.

“I always work hard during a period of injury. It is not like I sit and do nothing and wait to recover. You have to apply yourself properly to get fit again. I noticed tonight that things could go better in certain game situations but it is a question of finding the rhythm again in terms of playing 4 or 5 consecutive games to get fully back into the swing of things.

“I am satisfied with my performance in terms of being involved in 3 of the 4 goals. I must mention how good the PSV supporters were when I was subbed  I was grateful for their appreciation as that does not happen to players too often in such an obvious way so I commend the actions of the PSV Eindhoven supporters.”
