Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has opened the door to a return to the club by saying that he ‘would definitely’ relish the opportunity to coach at the club, the Mail Online understands.
A statue of the former Dutch international, who made over 400 appearances in an eleven year spell with the Gunners, was unveiled outside of the Emirates Stadium at the weekend.
The 44 year old is currently working with another of his former clubs, Ajax, where he is the assistant to manager Frank de Boer.
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has refused to comment on an outburst made by ex-Gunners forward Robin van Persie following Manchester United’s defeat to Olympiakos on Tuesday evening, according to the Express.
The Dutch international had complained that his teammates were ‘getting in his way’ during the game at the Karaiskakis Stadium.
The Arsenal manager has said that he did not hear the comments made by his former captain, who has been linked with a return to North London.
One striker who the Frenchman has commented on is Joel Campbell, who scored the second goal in the Greek Champions win against United, the Daily Star understands.
Wenger, who signed the Costa Rica international in 2011, praised his performance, saying he ‘was good and convincing going forward’.
