Arsenal fans already have a great deal to thank these two former forwards for, with Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp having played in almost 800 Arsenal games between them and scored well over 300 goals for the Gunners, picking up 17 winners medals in the process.
And now, according to a Metro report, we could soon have a lot more to thank the club legends for, as their legacy is still being felt today. It is still having a positive influence on our team as well, or at least it will when the brilliant young striking prospect that is Donyell Malan starts to break through into the Arsenal first team.
The 16-year old joined the Arsenal academy from the Dutch club Ajax in the summer and is tipped for great things in the future. And the Holland youth international revealed why that future will be with the Gunners.
He said, “When I found out Arsenal were interested in me I felt so proud and excited.
“Arsenal was a club that had always interested me for two main reasons, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry.”
Good news for Arsenal’s future and with the current team including such amazing players as Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez and some real promise in the youth system, who is to say how bright that future will be?
