Dutch legend advised Arjen Robben to finish his career in Bayern Munich, instead of returning to the Netherlands, according to bundesliga.com.

Robben has been with Bayern since he moved from Real Madrid in 2009. The 34-year-old has scored 93 goals and had 63 assists in a total of 182 matches in the Bundesliga. He has helped them get to six German titles, four DFB Cups and one UEFA Champions League cup during the 12/13 season.

Frank de Boer, who started his career with Ajax in 1998, shared that “He should end his career with Bayern. There’s always that thing about going home at the end of a great career. It can go well, but usually, it doesn’t. He doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone anymore.”

Arjen’s contract is due to end in the summer and Uli Hoeness, Bayern Munich’s president, admitted that a decision for his player’s future will probably be made in late spring. Robben, however, commented that he’s “simply focussing now on playing football.”

There have been speculations that he could probably return to his homeland, but according to De Boer, this is not the right choice.
