Arjen Robben finds it frustrating that he by injuries the last time a few minutes has made in Orange. The 33-year-old vleugelspeler doubted whether it was a good idea for the Dutch national team and Bayern Munich to continue to combine.

The 89-fold international finds it remarkable that in his eyes, a lot of players after an international game injured to return. “I think it has to do that the daily rhythm at the club after three months will be interrupted. You train differently, and is differently accompanied. And I say that without people deficiency to do.”

Robben made in the last two years, just 170 minutes in the Dutch national team. The attacker was involved in the last international match of Orange on november 13, against Luxembourg (1-3), but in that match he had to have an early drop out due to an injury.

“I was annoyed really that I still had to cancel and then against Luxembourg, I was just ready to quit,” says Robben, who is still no decisions on his future in Orange. “I go every interlandperiode view or I physically still can handle. I want every second in Orange games, but the physical aspect is the most important thing.”
