It was a painful recovery: Robben
Dutch footballer Arjen Robben, who has been sidelined since late March with an abdominal tear, is now fit but says recuperating was painful. “I’ve had a lot of injuries in my career, but this is something new. I’ve never had something like this before. In everyday life there’s so much you do that requires the abdominal muscle. You’re not able to get up - sit down, go to the toilet. You’re always in pain,” Robben was quoted as saying by football-orange.com. “We need him. It’s great news that he’s back. But let’s not forget he’s been out for five weeks. Robben is a special player,” said Bayern coach Pep Guardiola.
