Netherlands legend Arjen Robben was one of the best footballers the world has ever seen. Arjen Robben was the best winger of his era. Robben’s abilities in dribbling skills, speed, ball control and long-range shots have made him stand out in the world of football. Born in 1984, Robben played for the Netherlands under-15 team in 1999.
A 16-year-old Robben was signed by Dutch club Groningen to their senior team in 2000. Robben joined PSV two years later and was named the Netherlands’ Player of the Year the same year.

However, Robben was unable to produce a consistent performance at Chelsea due to a series of injuries. However, Robben has scored 15 goals in 67 appearances for Chelsea.
