Arjen Robben to resume playing career with Groningen

Former Chelsea and Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben will resume his playing career next season.

Robben has announced he is to come out of retirement to play for his hometown club FC Groningen.

The 36-year-old announced his retirement a year ago, leaving Bayern Munich to bring an end to a 19-year career.

The winger - who also played for PSV, Chelsea and Real Madrid - announced his decision video on Groningen's social channels.

"It will be a tough physical challenge but I am going for it," he said.
