Rafael van der Vaart thinks Arjen Robben can easily return to the Eredivisie next season with Groningen.

The 36-year-old winger retired last year but announced on Saturday that he will be back next season to play for Groningen.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Van der Vaart said, “I think he was not finished playing football at all. He took a break for a year and now he’s going home.

“He is still in top shape, so I think he can still easily go. But he will of course play in a team that is not top, that is different football. I know everything about that.”

Van der Vaart is not inspired to make a comeback himself, he laughs, “Will I start again myself? Well, what do you think? If you stop, you just have to stop.”
