Ernst Bouwes on Arjen Robben

Robben then went for a two-week holiday to Curacao, where he did not kick anything more than a beach ball. Returning home fresh and fit, he went through a routine pre-season test and was diagnosed with a 5cm "hole" in his thigh muscle, forcing him to miss training for at least two months.

"It's irresponsible this was not diagnosed accurately and he has played with it," the Bayern doctor said. "I offered several times to help with the diagnosis but did not receive a call." Shocked by the unexpected setback of having to miss one of their star players for an extended period, the club made clear they would contact the Dutch FA to settle the matter financially.
