Arjen Robben admits he could quit retirement

Arjen Robben has declared he may quit retirement to return to playing.

The former PSV, Chelsea and Real Madrid star had announced his retirement after coming off contract at Bayern Munich last summer.

But he stated on the FC Bayern Munich Podcast: “At the beginning, I didn't miss football at all. But then there was a phase where it tickled again and I had thoughts like, 'Hey, maybe I want to play a little bit again'.

"From time to time, I always have this feeling. With this virus, it's a very strange moment for everyone and when football comes back, then there! But maybe there is still a bit of football in me. I'm just an athlete. The future? I have nothing specific in mind."
