The great Arjen Robben has decided to end his playing career at the age of 37.
The former Chelsea, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona star announced the decision on Instagram on Thursday after a season with his boyhood Dutch club FC Groningen, where he made just seven appearances with two goals despite getting affected by injuries.
Robben told his fans on the social media app that the decision was not an easy one to take, before thanking everyone for his long career at the highest level.
"I have decided to quit as active player. A very hard choice to make. I want to thank everybody for all the warm support. Greetings, Arjen."
