After retiring, Bergkamp joined his first club Ajax in 2010 as a youth coach before being named as manager Frank de Boer’s assistant the following year.

Now the Dutch legend has admitted to the Telegraph, that he hopes for a return to London with the Gunners, buy does not think it will happen any time soon.

Bergkamp said, “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 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. I’ve spoken to or have heard about others (ex-Arsenal players) who would also love to come back. Steve Bould is there now which is excellent. I’ve spoken to Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry would love to come back to Arsenal one day. Tony (Adams) is a big option as well.”
