Former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas jumped to the defence of Gunners great Dennis Bergkamp after one pundit hinted that the Dutchman was overrated.
“Is this guy serious?” – this is how Cesc Fabregas responded to talkSPORT host Adrian Durham after the broadcaster questioned whether Dennis Bergkamp “was really that good” during his 11 years with the Gunners.
We aren’t even going to repeat anymore of the senseless claims that were made live on air, imagine questioning the legacy of a Premier League great that has a statue outside the Emirates Stadium…
Bergkamp is one of the best attackers to ever grace the Premier League, the silky Dutchman is also responsible for some of the greatest goals that have been seen in England’s top-flight.
Bergkamp won three Premier League titles, as well as four FA Cups during his spell in England. He’s one of the most decorated players in Arsenal’s history.
Take a look at the Spaniard’s response to Durham’s senseless claims:
Is this guy serious? Lost the plot big time there. If you don’t think Bergkamp was that good, then you don’t understand this sport at all. https://t.co/6YrXiX2vnn

Bergkamp has scored 87 goals and registered 94 assists in 315 Premier League appearances. This is fact – not some sensationalised opinion to gather attention.
The Dutchman is fifth on the all-time rankings for assists in the Premier League.
Credit to Fabregas for jumping to the Arsenal great’s defence on social media, if only things with the Spaniard didn’t end on such a bad note all those years ago.
