Robben not ready to leave Bayern

FC Bayern München winger Arjen Robben says he is not ready to give up at the Bundesliga champions despite his recent injury troubles.

The 32-year-old is in his final stages of recovery from an injury that ruled him out for the last three months of last season and has returned to light training.

Reports in Germany and the Netherlands have linked the former Chelsea and Real Madrid star to Turkish champions Besiktas, but Robben has quickly denied the rumours.

"Every summer, the same thing," the Dutch star told Bild. "I laugh at the rumours, I have a fantastic relationship with the people at FC Bayern – both sides have a very high esteem for the other.

"If Bayern wants to speak with me: I'm here at Sabener Strasse [training ground]. They can come over to see me anytime. Or they can call at my father's. They have my telephone number, too. 

"But first and foremost, I'm only interested in playing soccer well."

Despite stating his commitment to Die Roten, Robben claims he would seriously consider leaving if hometown club Groningen expressed an interest.

"If Groningen calls, then things will get hairy," he admitted.
