Arjen Robben to receive prize for services to Dutch football


Arjen Robben is set to receive an oeuvre prize from the Eredivisie, in recognition of the footballing legacy he has left behind.

Taking place on Wednesday night, the awards ceremony will commend the player, Under-21 player, goal and referee of the year as well as hosting this special prize for Robben.

The now 37-year-old made his professional debut for Groningen back in 2001 and has gone on to write himself into footballing history books courtesy of a glittering 21-year career.

Moving on from Groningen, Robben joined PSV Eindhoven where he would lift his first silverware, aiding in the club’s 2003/04 Eredivisie triumph. Subsequent spells at Chelsea and Real Madrid would produce yet more success as the winger collected eight honours over a five-year period with both clubs, before moving to Bayern Munich in 2009.

That move would produce a decade-long love affair between club and player, as Robben scored 144 and assisted 101 in 309 appearances for Die Roten. During those ten years, the Dutchman won eight Bundesliga titles, a Champions League crown and a whole host of domestic cup competitions, while also perfecting his memorable and mostly unstoppable ‘cut inside and shoot’ technique.
