Robben makes a big impression: ‘Everything is world-class, really cool to see’


Wessel Dammers is too rich: after his transfer from Fortuna Sittard to FC Groningen, he can suddenly call himself a teammate of Arjen Robben. The returned left leg (36) makes a big impression.

“Just his presence, the way he prepares training, is working with his body and training: everything is world class. That is really cool to see,” says Dammers in The Telegraph. “Robben skipped the first exhibition game, but has trained with the group before.” You can tell from the way he moves and the ball controls that he is still a very big player. With super high quality, that drips, even after a year of stopping. ”

Dammers can’t wait to be on the field with Robben. “When he really starts training with us and playing games, I think he will share his experiences even more and influence the game itself. Do we dare to approach him? Haha, sure, I already have Talked to him a few times. He doesn’t behave like: I’m Arjen and I’m used to this, so we have to change that. We like that about him. ”

“He is very approachable and if you ask something, he is very open about everything he has experienced,” said the defender. “Then he tells, for example, about Louis van Gaal or Pep Guardiola and the experiences that have made him better. Those are very nice things to hear and there you pick out things that you can really do with. He is now focused on himself and his return, but what he shares will only get more. “
