Arsene Wenger To Lure Back Old Friend To Save Arsenal

Emirates boss wants legend to return.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is attempting to bring back Dennis Bergkamp to the club in a coaching role.

The Dutch legend would jump at a return to the club having become a successful assistant manager at Ajax.

Wenger has been urged by the Gunners hierarchy to bring Bergkamp back into a role similar Patrick Vieira’s at Manchester City, according to the Daily Star.

Such a move would give a huge boost to the north Londoners, who lie fourth-bottom in the Premier League following a shocking start to the season.

Bergkamp spent 11 years in north London, helping Arsenal win Premier League titles and FA Cups.

He was also part of the famous Invincible team of the 2003/04 before retiring from the game in 2006.

Bergkamp often speaks of his desire to return to the Premier League, with Arsenal the logical choice.

“I wouldn’t rule out (working for Arsenal),” said the striker. “I really love this club and the country.

“I want to work and train a team in England. Not as a head coach, but, instead, as a member of staff, where I could work specifically with the strikers.”

It has been also suggested Arsenal – who face Bolton at home tomorrow – could appoint a director of football to help Wenger with his workload.

But that idea has been dismissed by chairman Peter Hill-Wood.

“Arsene has got a very good relationship with (chief executive) Ivan Gazidis and they get on very well and talk a great deal,” he said.

“There is absolutely no chance of bringing in a director of football. That is a lot of nonsense.”
