I happily chanced upon this today.

The Daily Mail have details of one of his wonder goals from 15 years ago….



They also quote his autobiography: ‘I want the pass from Pires to my feet, but it comes behind me. It’s not what I expect, so I think: I need another idea here.

This prompted me to go on a nostalgic youtube hunt!

And a great 15 minute video on Bergkamp:



He`s high up on the list of all time Premiership greats, that is for sure.
