Arsenal to Unveil Dennis Bergkamp Statue

Dennis Bergkamp is set to become the next Arsenal star to be honoured with a statue outside the Emirates Stadium. He’ll join other Gunners legends Herbert Chapman, Tony Adams and Thierry Henry who’ve got monuments erected too. Leaked images on Twitter by @chippingvon (since deleted) of the proposed sculpture sees the nicknamed Iceman (Bergkamp was so cool and controlled when on the ball) striking a familiar pose bringing the ball down with incredible finesse in mid-air. The sculpture’s based upon his masterful performance against Newcastle United in 2002 that includes that wondrous goal). Every single detail is down to a tee, including his Reebok boots and full kit. It’s exciting news for any Arsenal fan, who are also wishing to see a return of Bergkamp in a coaching role. Hopefully this will lure him in…
