Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben hints he could call time on his career after season ends
Robben called time on his international career last month after the Netherlands failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, but the 33-year-old remains a key player for Bayern.
Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben suggested on Thursday he could retire at the end of the season when his contract with the Bundesliga champions expires.
The Dutchman called time on his international career last month after the Netherlands failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, but the 33-year-old remains a key player for Bayern.
"My future is open. I could stop at the end of the season or... I could play for three more years at Bayern," Robben was quoted as saying by Kicker magazine.
"Anything is possible for me," he said. "I'm only looking ahead to the next match, no further. I want to try and enjoy it and play at a high level for as long as possible."
Robben has been blighted by injury throughout his career and suffered a small muscle tear in his left thigh during Wednesday's 2-1 victory at Anderlecht in the Champions League.
He will miss Saturday's Bundesliga match against Borussia Moenchengladbach as a result.
Former Chelsea star Robben has won six German titles as well as the 2013 Champions League since joining Bayern from Real Madrid in 2009.
Champions League: Karim Benzema says Real Madrid have a 'strong side', can go all the way in tournament
Madrid reached the semi-finals last season and Benzema believes they have what it takes to go all the way this time round ahead of Wednesday's match at the San Siro.
Lewandowski netted a first-half penalty before 18-year-old Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sane added quick-fire goals just after the break in front of 34,000 fans at Leipzig's Red Bull Arena.
Madrid reached the semi-finals last season but were resoundingly beaten by Chelsea, whose 3-1 win on aggregate would have been more emphatic had they not missed a cluster of chances in the second leg.
