Legendary former Bayern Munich player Arjen Robben is set to begin training with Manchester City this week as he prepares for an exciting comeback to football

Arjen Robben, the former Bayern Munich star, is set to commence training with Manchester City this week as he prepares for a remarkable return to football. Recently, Robben was spotted in the City changing room, offering words of encouragement to the squad following their impressive 5-1 triumph over Wolves.

City’s victory, fueled by goals from Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, brought them within one point of Premier League leaders Arsenal. This win marks their sixth consecutive top-flight victory, during which they have astonishingly netted 24 goals, keeping alive their hopes of clinching a fourth consecutive championship.

According to reports from The Daily Mail, various football luminaries were present at the game, including the likes of David Silva, who made a nostalgic return to the Etihad for the first time since his departure in July 2020. Robben, known for his humorous anecdotes about Guardiola’s late-night business discussions, commended City for their win and urged them to maintain pressure on Arsenal. Throughout his illustrious career, Robben has represented clubs such as Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Real Madrid, PSV, and Groningen.

During his visit to the UK last weekend, Dutch football legend Arjen Robben was not only seen at the Etihad but also photographed at Anfield, where he witnessed Liverpool’s 4-2 victory over Tottenham. Accompanied by former teammate Thiago Alcantara, Robben’s presence at these high-profile matches garnered attention across social media.

As Manchester City aims for their fourth consecutive Premier League title, three consecutive victories would secure them the trophy. Reflecting on the win against Wolves and the upcoming title challenge, Pep Guardiola emphasized the crucial nature of the remaining matches. Guardiola stated, “The next two weeks are crucial. Three games. We will become champions with nine points.

“Arsenal will win the Premier League if we only manage seven, six, or three points. Drawing is not an option; goal difference is out of our control. Arsenal has been consistent and impressive recently.

“We have three games left, and ideally, we take charge of our Premier League destiny by winning the first two and approaching the third with confidence. Despite today’s 5-1 result, I don’t believe it was our strongest performance.

“We gave away possession too easily. Against aggressive teams, we may opt for players like Phil Foden, Kevin De Bruyne, and Julian Alvarez, who can handle high-pressure situations. I credit Wolves for their tactical approach; Hwang Hee-chan and Matheus Cunha were always a threat.”
