Dennis Bergkamp appears to have ruled himself out of the running to take over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss, whilst claiming he has no intention to take charge of Ajax.
The former forward is enjoying his post-playing career as he works in the backroom of Dutch giants Ajax as a coach.
Dennis had been working under Frank De Boer as his assistant manager, but since Peter Bosz has taken over the main role, the former Arsenal man has been forced to take a less hands on role, and is now coaching and training with the younger players.
The 47 year-old has now moved to rule himself out as a future coach of his current club, insisting his love for his current role allows him to be free of stress and distraction, a luxury he is keen to keep.
“I have no ambition to become head coach of Ajax,” said Bergkamp.
“I think my role is pleasant as it is. When you are the head coach you are busy 24/7 with football.
“But I want to finish my work as soon as I step into my car to go home.
“And when I’m home, I’m the father of my children and the husband of my wife. Football just does not exist.”
Bergkamp added: “I want to eat dinner with my wife without headaches. Take my children to sports clubs.
“My kids keep me sharp. When my heads not completely with it they see it immediately. They say ‘Dad what’s going on? You are a little different today’.
Was any of you hoping he would be the next man in charge of Arsenal? Could he change his intentions when his kids get a little older?
