The Dutch winger parted ways with the Bavarians at the end of the 2018/2019 season and was linked with a move to the Major League Soccer.

However, Robben has now decided to hang up his boots at the age of 35.

"I have been thinking a lot over the past few weeks," Robben said in a press release.
"As everyone knows, I took the time to make an informed decision about my future after my last Bayern Munich match. And I decided to put an end to my career as a professional football player.
"It is without doubt the hardest decision I have had to make in my career. A decision where heart and mind collided.
"The love for the game and the conviction that you can still handle the whole world, as opposed to the reality that not everything runs the way you want and you are no longer the 16-year-old boy who had no idea what an injury meant.
"At the moment I am fit and healthy and as a fan of many other sports I would like to keep it that way for the future. I will therefore stop definitively, but it is good that way."

The Dutchman has also  played for the likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid and PSV Eindhoven.
