Bergkamp has said that he will back in north London one day.
Former Arsenal striker Dennis Bergkamp has said that one day he will come back to the club and hopes Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira will join him.
The Dutchman was back in north London at the weekend for the unveiling of his statue at the Emirates Stadium and was greeted by a chorus of ‘sign him up’ by the waiting fans.
Currently Bergkamp is Frank de Boer’s assistant at Ajax and whilst the 44-year-old is happy in Amsterdam, a return to the Gunners will happen.
“But it’s not the right time. I have a family with four children and we have just started something at Ajax,” the ex-forward told Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad.
“I am not in rush. But one day I will return to Arsenal.
“Maybe we will all return together [along with Henry and Vieira], just like we did with a couple of former players at Ajax.”
The trio achieved great success under Arsene Wenger, winning three Premier League titles and three FA Cups before all three left the club within two years of each other.
Henry is the only one still playing, with the 36-year-old with MLS franchise New York Red Bulls, whilst Vieira – like Bergkamp – has taken up a coaching position and is the manager of the Manchester City reserve team.
Supporters at the Emirates are likely to welcome these legends returning to the club in whatever capacity however.
