Dennis Bergkamp eyes Arsenal return

Former Arsenal forward Dennis Bergkamp has told Telegraph Sport he would like to return to the club in the future.

Dennis Bergkamp, one of clever ones, played under Arsene Wenger for a decade at Arsenal
Bergkamp flourished under Arsene Wenger's management.

Bergkamp spent 11 years at Arsenal, after joining them from Inter Milan in 1995, and went on to win a number of trophies including three Premier League titles.

The Dutchman became a fans' favourite with the Gunners faithful, and since his retirement in 2006 has regularly been linked with a return.

Bergkamp is currently assistant coach at his boyhood club Ajax, but has admitted he would be open to making his Arsenal comeback in a coaching capacity in a few years' time.

"The feeling Johan Cruyff has had for Barcelona, I have the same with Arsenal,” Bergkamp said.

"At Arsenal it was a good click. I always enjoyed it. I never had a bad day there. It is always on my mind. It is part of my ambition to come back at some stage.

"I can’t really plan ahead. I know I will be here [at Ajax] for at least another three or five years and then I don’t know. I don’t see myself being at Ajax for the rest of my coaching career. I don’t see myself as a manager.

"I see myself as being part of the coaching staff. I really enjoy that role, especially the individual training with the strikers.

"I’ve spoken to or have heard about others [former Arsenal colleagues] who would also love to come back.

"Steve Bould is there now which is excellent. I’ve spoken to Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry would love to come back to Arsenal one day. Tony [Adams] is a big option as well."

The summer signing of Mesut Ozil at Arsenal has brought with it comparisons with Bergkamp, as the Germany international plays a similar creative role to the Dutchman.

Bergkamp said: "I don’t like comparing. We’re all unique. But I do understand the similarities people see and I believe he can be very important to the team.

"It is still early days. He is a tremendous player with a lot of effective skills like controlling the ball, making creative passes and assists, taking the right position in the field every time. And he’s extremely experienced.

“Putting all that together I think you’ve got a player who can be the missing link in the Arsenal team, a player who will make a striker score goals, who will link up in Arsenal’s position-game and who will score goals as well.”
