The Dutchman put end on a stellar 21-year career after a short second spell with Eredivisie outfit Groningen
Ex-Bayern Munich and Chelsea player Arjen Robben has declared his retirement from professional football at the age of 37.

Robben initially chose to hang up his boots in 2019 after his final season at Bayern but executed a U-turn a year later by returning to Groningen – the club where he initially began his career in 2000.

Although the Eredivisie club reportedly offered the winger the opportunity to sign a an additional one-year deal earlier this summer, he has opted to walk away from the game perpetually after an injury-ravaged 2020-21 campaign.

Robben has verified the news in an official announcement on his social media accounts, while also posting a brief message to his followers.

“Dear football friends, I have decided to stop my active football career,” the caption on his latest Twitter post reads.

“A very difficult choice. I want to thank everyone for all the heartwarming support!

“Regards, Arjen.”
