Lies Arjen Robben not seriously damaged: ‘I expected worse’

Arjen Robben was not seriously injured during FC Groningens home game with PSV on Sunday. Medical examination has shown that his groin was not seriously damaged.

The 36-year-old Robben already fell out after half an hour. A scan in a hospital reassured him somewhat. Im glad the damage is not that bad, says the attacker at FC Groningen TV. I feared worse. I also expected worse. Fortunately nothing is broken in the muscle, nothing is torn. So thats hopeful

The attacker doesnt think its wise to give a prognosis about his recovery. Were just going to work hard again and Im positive about that, says Robben.

Groningen lost to PSV (1-3). The club will visit ADO Den Haag on Sunday.
