Arjen Robben to leave Bayern Munich at end of season but will play on
Arjen Robben has said he will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season after a decade of success at the German champions.
The 34-year-old joined the club in 2009 and formed a formidable attacking partnership with Franck Ribery, who is also likely to leave at the end of the season.
"I can say that this is my last year [at Bayern] and it is good like that," Robben told reporters after a meeting with fan groups. "I have taken the decision, personally, that this will be my last year.
"I think it is the right moment after 10 years. The club moves on and I may move on. It is the end of a very good and long period."
Robben has scored 98 goals in 198 Bundesliga games for Bayern and, since his arrival in 2009, he has played in three Champions League finals -- in 2010, 2012 and 2013 -- winning the title at the third attempt.
He has also won seven Bundesliga titles, including the last six in a row, and four German Cups with the club.
Robben, who has also won league titles with PSV Eindhoven, Chelsea and Real Madrid and featured in the 2010 World Cup final for Netherlands, added that he had no plans to retire.
"I may move on. I won't stop completely yet," he said.
