Former Netherlands international, Khalid Boulharouz has backed his compatriot, Arjen Robben to remain at Bayern Munich.
The 34-year-old has developed into an experienced midfielder at Bayern since joining in 2009, however, his contract only has four months on it.
Robben is yet to be offered a contract, but Boulharouz has asked him to renew if his body can still take it.
“I don’t think he should go back to the Netherlands yet,” Boulahrouz told Goal.
“He can go back eventually but it also depends on his family. He has been playing in top competitions for so many years. In England, he was at the top level. In Spain, he was at the top level. In Germany, he is at the top level.
“There comes a day when your body cannot continue, you are tired. Even if you want to continue, your body will talk to you and say ‘okay I cannot handle it anymore.’
“If he can continue then I would advise him to continue with Bayern Munich. They are one of the best clubs in the world and he already has a big reputation in Germany. He has been there for so many years, so why not.
“I think it feels like home to him, so why change club when you are comfortable. He looks strong in a physical way so I cannot see why he cannot continue for another couple of years. He was one of the best I have played with, he is fantastic.”
