Bild have published quotes from the Dutch attacker in which he says he was bitten when retrieving a ball that had fallen in a lake near the ground where they were playing.
Robben’s hand is badly bruised around the thumb, middle and ring finger and he must now wear a brace to protect himself from further harm.
The former Real Madrid man can continue to train with Bayern but told Bild of the incident: “When I got a ball from the hole at pool, a crocodile has bitten me!”
Rumours have begun to emerge that the star forward actually suffered the injury during a weights session but we prefer this explanation.
Robben is of course well known for his propensity to over-react to a challenge and as such this incident is fairly amusing.
Bayern meanwhile continue to train in the Middle East country as the Bundesliga’s winter break comes to an end.
The German league champions will return to action on the 30th January away at Wolfsburg
