Bayern Munich fitness coach Holger Broich believes Arjen Robben can reach a high level of fitness ahead of his Eredivisie return with FC Groningen.

The 36-year-old has been retired for a year but will return for Groningen next season.

Ahead of his comeback, Robben worked on his fitness with Bayern Munich coach Holger Broich.

Speaking to Algemeen Dagblad, Broich said, “Arjen is still in excellent shape. Added to his technical and tactical skills and experiences, I am confident that he will once again reach a high level in competitions.”

Broich is confident that Robben’s injury history won’t hold him back, “If a top athlete thinks he can be successful again with his abilities, we have to respect it. From the first moment I worked with him in 2014, I have been impressed by his professionalism.”

Robben will complete his first group training with Groningen on Monday.
