Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp reveals his ambitions to seal a route back into coaching

Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has admitted he’s keen to get back into coaching.

The Gunners legend was Ajax assistant manager for six years between 2011-2017 but is yet to take up another role since leaving the post.

Whilst Mikel Arteta has taken the head coach role at the Emirates Stadium and ex-teammates Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira have posts elsewhere, Bergkamp has put his career on hold.

However, the Dutchman has stressed he’d be keen to venture into new opportunities and has the urge to return to football in a coaching or director capacity.

“When the time is right, I’d love to go back and get a role somewhere,” Bergkamp told FourFourTwo.

“At the moment we’re great in Holland. I’ve got a young family and have been out of coaching for a little while now.

“But I must admit, I have the urge to go on the pitch again and help, whether it’s with the technical or coaching staff.

“It might be a bit too early, but you never know. We’ll see what comes my way.”
