Bayern Munich legend Arjen Robben has suggested he could be open to offers to continue playing football.

The ex-Chelsea, Real Madrid and PSV winger, 35, who won 12 leagues 12 titles and 96 Holland caps announced his decision to retire in July after suffering from repeated injuries during his final season in the Bundesliga.

However, he believes retiring was by far the toughest decision of his career.

He told Dutch station NPO Radio: “Maybe in one or two months I’ll have a strange feeling that I miss the whole thing too much and will decide I have to go back. But of course, it doesn’t get any easier the longer you’re retired. I do not rate the chances [of returning] very highly.”
