Former Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben Announces Comeback
Former Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben, who retired from playing professional football last summer, has just announced his return with the club where he started his career, FC Groningen.
He was born in Bedum, a stone’s throw from Groningen, before getting married in Groningen in 2007.
Robben had called it quits at the end of last season following a glittering career where he won league titles with Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Real Madrid and the Champions League.
He earned 96 caps for the Netherlands, helping the “Oranje” reach the World Cup final in 2010 against Spain. There was heartbreak for him in the finale, though, as Spain won 1-0 in extra time after Robben missed a glorious chance in the second half.
