Revealed: Arsenal Legend Bergkamp Set For Surprise Return to English Football

Arsenal News HQ brings you the latest Arsenal news, match analysis, transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from trusted media outlets around the World.

Dennis Bergkamp is reportedly part of a consortium that is trying to buy League One side, Wycombe Wanderers.

According to David Ornstein at The Athletic, a group consisting of Dennis Bergkamp, Henrik Larsson, Dirk Kuyt, and Ronald Koeman as an advisor, “made a bid for the club with a view to “catapulting Wycombe into stardom”.”

They are not, however, the club’s preferred option despite their plans to transform the club’s commercial operations and the wealth of footballing experience they would bring with them.

That honour goes to a 70-year-old lawyer and American businessman called Rob Couhig who has twice ran (and lost) to become New Orleans Mayor.

It is a complex situation which Ornstein explains in detail here.

After leaving Ajax under something of a cloud, Bergkamp took up a volunteer coaching role with Almere City, a club only founded in 2001.

Although they can trace their history back to 1972, this current iteration came into being in 2001 when the sports club Omniworld was formed and until 2010/11 the football team were known as FC Omniworld.

Bergkamp’s 20-year-old son Mitchel is also on the books of the club.

Bergkamp was reportedly removed from his role as assistant manager at Ajax after a disagreement with Marc Overmars prompting some to claim the Arsenal legend’s ruthlessness was feared at the club.
