Dennis Bergkamp says he wants to return to Arsenal to work as one of the club’s coaching staff.
The Arsenal legend, who is currently assistant coach at Ajax, had this to say in an interview with The Telegraph newspaper:
“The feeling Johan Cruyff has had for Barcelona, I have the same with Arsenal.
“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.”
Ahem, Arsene Wenger, are you listening?!
