Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has become the latest former player to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.
“I’m honoured. It feels special to be part of a small group of players who got the recognition of playing in the strongest league in the world,” Bergkamp reacted.
“The Premier League made me a better player. I’m extremely proud if people say that I was one of the first foreign players who added something to the English game.
“The Premier League most definitely made me a better player. From the moment I arrived in England I’ve embraced the English mentality and passion for football, it suited me and my style of play.
“Playing every game against good and tough opponents meant I improved all the time. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.”
Arsenal’s new pearl ‘citrine pale yellow’ is available to buy now from ArsenalDirect.
Purchases will be exclusive to Arsenal and kit manufacturers Adidas until May 20.
The jersey is inspired from an old classic from the club’s past, celebrating 50 years since the club won the league and FA Cup double.
