IT IS TWENTY YEARS SINCE DENNIS BERGKAMP JOINED ARSENAL.
It is now twenty years since the silky Dutch man or the non flying Dutch man joined Arsenal, it was in 1995 from Inter Milan for a then club record of 7.5 million pounds, think about it will you. It was before Arsene Wenger had joined Arsenal in 1996. Arsenal were in a mess then their manager George Graham was sacked for pocketing transfer money, Paul Merson was in rehab for gambling, drugs and drinking problems. That was not all Arsenal lost 17 straight matches, and ended 12th on the table below Queen Park Rangers and eleven points behind their arch rival Tottenham Hotspurs. Dennis Bergkamp convinced Marc Overmars also to join Arsenal , things were never the same after that.
