Brand new KNVB federal knight Robben reflects on training and World Cup opportunities Orange

Arjen Robben, together with Robin van Persie, was appointed federal knight of the KNVB on Sunday. Afterwards, the former winger expressed his gratitude and also stopped for a moment about his first job as a trainer and the Orange‘s chances at the World Cup in Qatar.
Robben traveled with a number of former internationals to Zeist on Sunday, where the KNVB discussed their performance. The former player of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, among others, was subsequently awarded the title of federal knight. “This is, of course, special. I’
m always thankful for any kind of appreciation and recognition,” Robben said in conversation with ESPN.
The fast-paced left leg officially stopped playing football at FC Groningen in 2021. He is now training the O15 of Be Quick, the team where his son plays. “It‘s just fun to be busy with the boys and the games. After all, I’m part of a team again. These are young guests, so I‘m also busy training and sometimes raising a bit. It’s really fun, I really enjoy it.”
Finally, Robben received a question about the chances of the Dutch national team at the World Cup in Qatar. “The Netherlands has an incredibly talented group at the moment, with a lot of potential for the future. That is really nice to see. There are also, without naming names, a few players that I can enjoy playing.”
