Arsenal legend drops Gunners coaching hint

Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp would consider a coaching role at the Emirates Stadium.

The Dutch forward enjoyed 11 memorable years in north London with the Gunners, scoring more than 120 goals in 400 appearances under Arsene Wenger.

And, speaking to talkSPORT, the Dutchman admitted he’d love the opportunity to coach abroad in the future – with Arsenal a potential destination.

“The thought on my mind, the ambition I have, is to coach abroad and be part of a coaching staff, to have coaching input and work with strikers,” Bergkamp told talkSPORT.

“Of course I would think of Arsenal at that time. I had many, many good moments there.

“There were so many good seasons and good trophies as well, which are the best moments for a player.

“Overall, it was a good 11 years for me. I look back on it and enjoy it, I’m very proud of what I achieved in my time there.”

Since retirement in 2006, Bergkamp has been with Ajax learning his coaching skills. He’s currently assistant manager to Frank de Boer in Amsterdam, and helped the Dutch giants to back-to-back-to-back Eredivisie titles over the past three seasons.

But he’ll soon be looking for a change of scenery, with the Premier League, and Arsenal in particular, potentially on the horizon.

Bergkamp joined Arsenal from Inter Milan in a deal worth £7.5m in 1995. He quickly became a fan favourite at Highbury and formed a formidable striking partnership with Arsenal's record goalscorer Thierry Henry.

The Dutchman won three Premier League titles and four FA Cup trophies at Arsenal.
