Dutch great Robben announces retirement from football
Dutch winger Arjen Robben announced on Thursday he is ending his playing career at the age of 35 after a 10-year spell with German giants Bayern Munich.
"At the moment I'm fit and healthy and as a fan of many other sports, I want to keep it that way in the future," Robben added.
At Bayern, he combined with fellow winger Franck Ribery to great effect as the pair earned the nickname 'Robbery'.
"Thank you, danke, merci, dankjewel @arjenrobben," wrote the 36-year-old Ribery, whose Bayern contract also expired last month, on Twitter.
"Best @FCBayern counterpart I could imagine, #Robbery will never be forgotten! What a career my friend, now enjoy your time off the pitch."
Robben had already retired from international football after the Netherlands failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
He missed the majority of Bayern's tight title contest against Borussia Dortmund in the second half of last term, but returned late in the season.
Robben and Ribery both scored in their farewell appearance as Bayern secured a seventh straight German league title on the final day of the season with a 5-1 thrashing of Eintracht Frankfurt.
