Arjen Robben will not feature when Groningen returns to action against Heracles Almelo on Saturday.

Since his return to the club, Groningen fans have been waiting for their first glimpse of Robben in action.

However, that will not be on Saturday with Robben left out of the squad to face Heracles Almelo in Groningen’s first pre-season friendly.

Groningen head coach Danny Buijs told the club’s website, ‘An individual program applies to him, which is aimed at being there when we start the competition, at home against PSV. That is the goal. At the moment this looks very good, whereby we have to adjust things occasionally in his tailored plan. What I said: it is ultimately about the start of the competition.”
