Dennis Bergkamp

Where is Dennis Bergkamp now?

A huge favourite with the Arsenal fans, Dennis Bergkamp finally finished his playing career in 2006 after eleven successful seasons in the Premier League.

Bergkamp will be remembered as one of Arsenal’s greatest players, winning three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and picking up player of the year awards from the Football Writers’ Association and the PFA during his time there.

Upon retiring, Bergkamp was adamant that he wouldn’t move into a coaching role but in 2011-12 he was appointed assistant coach and striker trainer at Ajax working alongside his former Dutch national team-mate Frank De Boer. 

When De Boer left Ajax in 2016, Bergkamp moved away from his assistant manager role to a more training focused role behind the scenes which also saw him presiding over the club’s youth policy.

In December 2017, Bergkamp was sacked after a coaching reshuffle made by General Manager Edwin van der Sar and Technical Director Marc Overmars on the back of a series of poor results on the field.

 In 2014 a bronze statue of Bergkamp was unveiled outside the Clock End of Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.

He also released a book in 2014 called Stillness and Speed: My Story, in which he answers various questions about his illustrious career.

As part of the Premier League’s 25th anniversary in 2017, Bergkamp’s goal against Newcastle in 2002 was voted the league’s greatest ever goal.
