Arjen Robben has explained why he has chosen to come out of retirement to play for Groningen.
The former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich winger retired from football last summer, but will now feature for his former club in the Eredivisie.
“[I came out of retirement] for my love of the club,” Robben said about playing for Groningen again in a press conference.
“If I can do something for the club, I think the area where I can be of most use is on the pitch.
“Initially, we were talking about an attempt to return, but I feel quite good and I think I’m heading in the right direction.
“I still have to make a few more steps, but I have a very good feeling about my future.

“If another club had come in with a good offer, I don’t think I’d have accepted it.
“Of course, the difference in standard with Bayern Munich is big, but I’m doing it for the team and I hope I can enjoy myself.”
