There are no Arsenal fans that don’t look back on Dennis Bergkamp’s career with the Gunners with nothing but fond memories of glorious goals and beautiful football from the Dutch maestro. His patnership with Thierry henry was truly a joy to behold.
He contributed his own share of goals as well and scored 120 in his 10 years with the club, and his famous goal against Newcastle United was voted as the best Premier League goal of all-time in the league’s 25-year history. You can read a tribute to Dennis here, and watch a video of his Top Ten goals for Arsenal.
These memories were retrieved when Bergkamp had an interview with Ian Wright last week, and, of course, Wrighty had to ask him if he would like to come back to Arsenal one day. “I would think so, yeah,” said Bergkamp, as quoted on HITC. “At the moment, it’s a bit difficult family-wise. I’ve still got a young family, we’re settled here, but as the kids move on, they’ve got their own plan of course in life, and once that happens, I would love to return into coaching, and especially in an academy or maybe even part of the first team, that sort of role. I don’t see myself as a head coach; I enjoy being part of a staff, but not really being the main man.”
It has now been two years since Bergkamp parted company with Ajax, after being assistant coach to Frank de Boer, and he was sacked along with De Boer when Peter Bosz took over. It’s a shame he never got over his fear of flying as he could have maybe done the job while commuting, but now it looks like we will be waiting a while to see him at the Emirates.
