Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben reveals that he has considered retiring from football due to his frequent injury problems.

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has admitted that the number of injuries that he has suffered during his career resulted in him considering retirement.

The 28-year-old has frequently been blighted with injury problems throughout his 12-year professional career, and he has revealed that it almost forced him to quit the game.

Robben told NOS: "I have had so many injuries during my career. It occasionally makes me a bit sad.

"To be honest, I have thought about hanging up my boots more than once. It's a rather rigorous thought, but it's a consideration I've had, and not only at this point."

Robben played for Chelsea and Real Madrid before he joined Bayern Munich in 2009.
