The players of FC Groningen do not expect Arjen Robben to stop playing football immediately. The 36-year-old attacker sustained a groin injury on his official return as a professional in the home game against PSV (1-3) on Sunday and may have been eliminated for a longer period of time.
Matusiwa: ‘Arjen is our most important player’
“I am not afraid that Arjen will throw the towel. I know him now and I don’t think he will quit the fight after one injury. This blow is not fun, but I am hopeful that he will come back”, said goalkeeper Sergio Toad against FOX Sports.
After half an hour of play, Robben collided unhappily with PSV player Pablo Rosario and immediately signaled to the bank that he had to be replaced. He then left, upset, towards the dressing room and then quickly home.
“I saw him in half time. I saw him very angry from the field, so I expected that he would not be approachable, but he reacted okay when I asked how he was doing,” said Padt.

Robben will be told the seriousness of the injury on Monday or Tuesday. He played his first official game against PSV since May last year, when he ended his career at Bayern Munich. After he announced his return at the end of June, he already participated in two exhibition matches.
“Arjen is our most important player. This sucks for him and for us. It didn’t look good, but I hope it’s going to be easy. He knows his body like no other and if he thinks he can do it, he can. It. He has worked very hard in recent months, “said midfielder Azor Matusiwa.
Padt: “Arjen was met with a lot of fanfare and rightly so. He wants to give the people something back. He did a fantastic job with his goal against Arminia Bielefeld last week and he hoped to continue that in the league. I think that that is still his mission. “
