Former Bayern Munich and Netherlands international winger Arjen Robben has stated he does think about coming out of retirement.

The 36-year-old could have returned to PSV Eindhoven or Groningen last summer after leaving Bayern Munich, but instead chose to retire.

Speaking to the FC Bayern podcast, Robben said, In the beginning I didn’t miss football at all. But then there was a phase when it tickled again and I had thoughts such as: “Hey, maybe I would like to play a little again.

“From time to time I still have this feeling. With this virus, it is a very strange time for everyone and when football returns, then now! But maybe it always stays a bit in there. I’m just an athlete.”

However, Robben is enjoying the freedom that comes with retirement,  “I never had the opportunity to plan private things.”
