Bayern Munchen legend Arjen Reuben considers playing professional again but rules out a return to the German club even though he currently works with the club training center.
In an interview with Sport1, the forward stated that even though it might sound disapponting, his coming back to Bayern is a hundred percent impossible.
Asked if he could start playing again, he said: “You never know. I don’t want to say yes or no now.
“For me and my family, the move to Holland is due at the end of the month. We’ll see everything else. In any case, I will always stay connected to Bayern.
“I train two to three times a week with head of fitness Dr. Holger Broich and I would like to continue doing so. We do runs, sprints and also work with the ball. I really enjoy it and I want to stay fit. I am very grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to do this training. In the past few months, however, I have always been seen at Bayern’s training centre.
“My fitness levels are very good. Staying fit after retirement is very important to me. I also wanted to run a marathon this year, which unfortunately did not work due to the coronavirus crisis. As far as I can tell, I haven’t put on weight yet. So everything is fine with me”
“I feel very good at the moment. I also notice clearly that pressure has dropped from me.
“There are days when I train very intensively in my free time. If it starts to hurt in the body, I give myself a break and only train again when I am free of pain. This is definitely a difference from my playing career.”
The Netherlands icon was asked if he had any words for 19-year-old compatriot Joshua Zirkzee, who has impressed for the Bayern first-team this term, scoring three times in seven Bundesliga appearances.
“He and all the other talents at Bayern should never be satisfied with themselves,” he said.
“Joshua has to want to improve every day, set a new goal every day and never be fed up.
“It is also important that he reflects on his performance again and again. The fact that he was always in the squad recently shows that Hansi Flick is satisfied with his development, but it will be very important that he plays regularly. I wish Joshua only the very best for the future.” Said the forward.
