Lohne (dpa) – Former Bayern star Arjen Robben does not travel with his new club FC Groningen to the short training camp in Lohne in Lower Saxony. The 36-year-old instead stays at home and wants to continue working on his fitness there, according to the club.

Robben wore his home club shirt for the first time last weekend and played in a friendly match for about half an hour. The Dutchman must be carefully rebuilt after a one-year break. The season in the Netherlands starts on 13/12. September.
