Former Arsenal forward Dennis Bergkamp has admitted that the current situation of the club hurts him.
The player was part of Arsenal’s more successful sides which had superstars in the team but now it seems Arsenal are fighting hard to make the top 4.
“It’s different of course to what I was used to, with English players and a few foreign, now it’s moved the other way,” Bergkamp was quoted by Metro.
“Sometimes it’s good but a lot of times you don’t really feel that it’s Arsenal as we know it. You know, with the passion and a few players that make a difference.”
“It’s difficult to say whether it is better or worse but better is always shown in trophies, which aren’t there at the moment,” he added.
“On the one hand, there are so many clubs who improved so quickly to a high level, whereas Arsenal, may be improved, but not to that level.”
He explained: “It’s hard, it’s difficult and it hurts sometimes.”
“You feel sometimes that Arsenal should do better but I’m still hoping.”
Bergkamp alongside many other legends of Arsenal could maybe one day return to help the club like Lampard is doing at Chelsea.
