Bergkamp keen on Arsenal coaching role


The former Netherlands international left the club in 2006 to end 11-years at Arsenal.

Following his retirement Bergkamp, who spent two years as an assistant to Frank de Boer at Ajax Amsterdam, says he is now open to a return to Arsenal.

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

"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," he added.
