Dennis Bergkamp says he would be open to a return to Arsenal in the future in some kind of coaching role.
Currently assistant manager at Ajax, working with former international teammate Frank de Boer, the Arsenal legend told an FA Q&A that coming back to Arsenal is something he’d welcome.
Asked if he’d consider a coaching role with the Gunners, Bergkamp, who spoke this week about Arsenal’s new British core, said, “I would yes. We have started something good now at Ajax and I know a little bit in my role now, what I like and what I don’t like so if I could fulfil a similar role abroad, especially at Arsenal.
“That would be one of the things that I would like to achieve in the future. But not in the near future because we have just started here.”
Obviously his flying issues preclude him from becoming manager of the club, or any club, but the idea of Dennis coaching Arsenal players is mouthwatering indeed.
As he says though, it’s not something that’s going to happen soon, but one day is good enough. One day.
