Arjen Robben was 'tickled' by thought of a retirement U-turn

Arjen Robben has contemplated a return to football since his retirement last July, though he is not expecting to act on that urge.

Former Bayern Munich and Netherlands winger Arjen Robben acknowledged there was a period when the idea of reversing his retirement decision "tickled" him.

Robben brought his playing career to a halt at the end of the 2018-19 season after spending an immensely successful 10 years with Bayern.

In that time, he won eight Bundesliga titles, five DFB-Pokal crowns and the Champions League once, playing a key role in many of those triumphs.

Robben suffered with injury problems through much of his career and it came as little surprise – despite reports of a potential return to the Eredivisie – when he announced his retirement in July after his release by Bayern.
