robb oranjeArjen Robben is open to playing in America’s MLS later in his career, as he thinks the league is developing well – and offers a great outlet for European players. Robben didn’t give a timeline to when he would consider making the move, but even at 31, Robben doesn’t look to be slowing down (literally) anytime soon.

Robben has been out injured since late mid-March with an abdominal tear muscle, and will miss both legs of Bayern’s Champions League ties against FC Porto, where the Portuguese outfit unexpectedly outscored the Bavarians 3-1 last week. Having developed into a leader and key player for Bayern Munich since his move there in 2012, Robben said it is very disappointing to have to watch from the stands when he knows he could contribute to the team.

The hosts also asked him who the best manager he’s ever worked under. Robben has worked under all the contemporary greats: Van Gaal, Hiddink, Mourinho, and currently Guardiola; however, the pacy winger was wise enough not to make a choice and praise all the great managers who have helped him develop.
