Dennis Bergkamp outlined his type of coaching role

Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp said being on the training pitch of Arsenal is what he enjoys the most and has opened the door to a potential Arsenal coaching job.

The former striker was linked to Mikel Arteta’s set up this year and has played more than 300 games and scored 120 goals in 11 years for the Gunners.

The Dutchman spent six years coaching Ajax but since December 2017 he has not been in a full-time role.

He hasn’t ruled it out in the long term either while claiming that he’s not actively searching for a career.

In a column for BBC Sport, he wrote: “I haven’t worked full-time since I left Ajax in 2017, and at the moment I’m not actively searching for a job in football.”

“But, more and more, I am thinking about getting back on the training pitch again, because that is what I love the most.”

Dennis Bergkamp outlined his type of coaching role

Bergkamp outlined what type of role he has in mind if he were to return to coaching.

“Whatever I do next, though, I don’t want to be a head coach,” he wrote.

“It’s not my ambition and I like my freedom too much.”

“I like to spend time with my family and have a life outside football, and I don’t think you can be a fully committed manager if you want to play golf sometimes as well.

“Seriously, though, I know certain clubs work with strikers’ coaches, just like the old goalkeeper specialists who came in two or three times a week, and as soon as the session was finished they were gone.”

“But, for me, it would be too restrictive to be limited to that side of it. If someone is not doing well, I’d want to talk about the rest of his game – whether it be something tactical or a personal issue.”
