Bergkamp was snubbed as Arsenal coach says Wright

Former Arsenal player and goal scorer extraordinaire, Ian Wright, has claimed that another Gunners legend, Dennis Bergkamp, wanted to come to the Emirates as a coach but was turned down by Arsene Wenger. Wright also called for the resignation of some board members and a move to bring David Dein back to the club.

Wright was as shocked as the rest of us by the defeat, and the manner of it, by Bradford last night, and he believes that enough is enough and some drastic changes should be made. The former striker also seems to have joined the growing ranks of Gooners who have lost faith in Wenger and his ability to turn the poor current form around.

“I think a few board members would have to go for David Dein to come back. Please God that happens.

“Wenger turned DB10 away! Threatened by his popularity I think. Dennis wanted to coach Wenger said no!”

Bergkamp was offered a scouting role at Arsenal a few years back but wanted to travel and spend time with his family. Since then he has gone back into football, taken his coaching badges and is now assistant to Frank de Boer at the Dutch champions Ajax. One of the best strikers ever, Bergkamp would have been amazed at the performances of Gervinho and Chamakh last night and could surely help them to improve.

Wright was asked via Twitter whether he felt that Arsenal are in danger of slipping out of the top four this season and becoming a mid-table club, and if so would the fault lie with Wenger.

“This could be the start of that scenario! And he has brought us to it!”

    guess what all the ex arsenal star players are fed up of the way afc is run by wenger and co. And it is no coincidence that they can see wenger has run out of time & idea and he can do no good to arsenal anymore.
    ex arsenal player stewart robson has openly criticized wenger and said that he should be sacked.
    and it is not just wenger.. Mr.Arsenal TONY ADAMS too said something similar earlier dis year.
    i just wanna ask all the wenger supporters.. are all dis ex arsenal star players wrong in their opinion about arsenal?

    Man We cant do any thing About BOARD except by taking some extreme Measures, n tht (we asian fans) cant do, but Fans In London can do that!

    What i see Possible at the moment is, we can Change some Players!

    We dont want Gervinho n Ramsey at all in starting Line Up!
    So Some sticky banners For Them! Remember against MANURE we shouted THEO THEO THEO n it was URGENT change by Wenger!

    Man Ramsey on Wing n Ox On Bench, what a joke!

    Gervinho as ST, Podolski on WINGS, another Joke!

    What should I say? Wenger has Lost his BRAIN!

    Plz plz plz , ALL FANS IN LONDON, make some STICKY BANNERS For RAMSEY n GERVINHO in special!

    Slogans For SAGNA too, we desprately need him to sign Contract , so as WALLCOT!

    Why on earth does wenger protect players after matches or direct the blame to refs and pitches?Fergie blasted nani for their defeat against chelsea in the carling cup and has never played him since.That shows you he’s not a respecter of players and whoever you are the club is bigger,now if nani is given a chance and gervinho plays(as expected) isn’t it obvious that the Nani will be twice as prolific as gervinho because he has learnt the hard way.That’s why we need a coach whom the players will fear and respect and DEIN to restore stability behind the scenes

    The whole board including Wenger needs to leave for a complete turnaround to happen at AFC. Bring back Dein with Usmanov on the board to orchestrate a massive clearout of the deadwoods and sign a new manager and marquee players to blend with the few committed players left in the rank like Schezny, Wilshere,Ox and the rest to begin on new slate. AFC will never win nothing under Wenger and the current greedy board/chairman. it is time to separate Arsene with Arsenal.
    Wenger’s ego will not allow alternative contribution or subordinate to thrive at Arsenal unless they are yes men. His is not bigger than the club.

    As much as I admire AW and what he has bought to the club its time we let him go, every since our move to the Emirates AW has reduced his expectations and a manager who once hated losing is now content with a top four finish. Success since the move to the Emirates for AW is anything above fifth. He is so proud about his champions league record and made that his imaginary trophy. With this frame of mind its passed on to the player because the manager carves out or molds the player to his expectations and his expectations for the past 7 years has been that imaginary trophy!! If manager and the board have a clear vision, aims and goals on how they can win trophies we should have had a couple by now. Lets face the fact as spectators we know very well the current crop are nothing close to a trophy winning squad the board knows it so does AW, but with grater precedence on monetary benefits both board and AW make a lot of money every season if they turn a profit not to forget the fat bonuses. I think greed has gotten the better of AW and the board or where else will you find a manager earning top salary for not winning anything? Even trophy winning managers are no where close to what Aw earns. Arsenal problem are not just the board its also the manager if AW expectations where higher he would have bought quality players into the squad instead we are stuck with a lot of non performing players who are hard to sell and earn 50-60k a week for doing nothing and not giving Walcot 85-90k a week is just pure stupidity!!

    Wrighty is a legend and a top bloke but this is the same Ian Wright who told Henry he would be mad to stay at the Arsenal in not joining Barca, sour grapes wich i have never forgotten.
    He may be right about the board change for its they whom would not reward/entice our star players in staying and in so destroyed all the work wich Wenger had done in creating a team of stars.
    Football people know that Arsene is and always has been a top quality manager, Dein still thinks so as he said we cant rely on Wenger pulling a rabbit out of a hat every single season and furthermore if or when Dein returns who do you believe he will intrust at the helm, Arsene Wenger of course.

    wenger is losing a star striker in podolski.he play him on the wings …..he is not the winger type player hes neither too fast nor a dribbler.
    in th last 3 seasons with kohln he was enjoying 18-24 goals a season with a relegation battle club,but then he was playing as a striker……so with a club having cazorla,wilshire arteta and walcott he logicly must score 26-30 a season with arsenal if he plays as striker,but we saw him score 6 in 21 apperarences as wenger put him as a winger and sees in gervinho a world class striker.
    podolski will lose confidence as long as he plays as winger and dont score……..WEMGER HAS LOST IT

    @villa123 maybe you should listen to Parlour who regularly visits training, Charlie, Keown and Merson who is disgusted with current downslide but still sees Wenger a high quality of manager whos still the best man for the job.

    Adams as we all know has an agenda. I havnt read the full thoughts of Wrighty just yet so dont quite know what to make of it, it may be just a case of him using his popularity for Deins benifit. I remember we offered Dennis a coaching role a very long time back but he turned it down.
    Maybe Dennis wanted to learn the Dutch way of coaching then return as manager, wich would give no substance to this claim of refusing a Bergkamp offer. Maybe Wrightys confused/stirring.
    I still dont understand why Wrighty didnt want his boy to join the Arsenal especially considering our record for grooming talent, we wanted SWP but Ian counselled him in joining Chelsea. And the hole Wrighty nudging Henry towards Barca, the man sometimes just puzzles me.

    Totally with you there! The whole “business model” that the club has been using ever since silent stan took over is becoming more and more realized by the club’s supporters… If we don’t spend in Jan, people will go Ape Sh%t! And if, or when, that happens, I reckon Wenger will be out of here…

    And I personally think that silent stan should be to blame for making Wenger look totally un-ambitious, given what he has done before he bought out the club.

    Love how Wrighty will always call it how it is. Always seems to express what the fans are thinking.

    ‘and could surely help them to improve.’ Stupid comment. Dennis wouldn’t have them anywhere near our first team.

    Wenger’s clearly intimidated about having an assistant who may actually express their view. But by the sounds of it even Bouldy’s been arguing with him about how the defence should play. Because if anyone at Arsenal knows how to put a defence together, its Bouldy.

    The support was amazing and they deserved better and it’s something we need to put right. We are desperate to deliver that success and only by talking to those of us here will you understand that we will.

    I don’t pretend we get everything right, but we do really try.

    We built our revenues, we built our reserves , we need to do better, how we spend that money. You will see players joining the Premier League from Italy and Spain especially outside the top two teams

    We are a club that is under pressure. The squad needs something. We’ve got money to spend, but does that mean that he’s [the players] available? That’s something else.

    [There are] no plans for a share issue. This can’t be the board of directors for the next 10 years, the issue will develop. My communications with Stan are generally about team performance, obviously he’s not happy with the way the team is performing.

    Gervinho is the worst player I have ever seen in an arsenal shirt!! I don’t however agree with the amount of stick Ramsey gets, he’s a worker and a fighter, and I think people forget that he’s still only 21, and his best years are in front of him. Oh, and don’t forget he’s being played out of position. Should Wenger go? Yes, because new ideas could freshen up this Arsenal team. No, because I think the Arsenal board have a lot to answer for. If what they say about our finances are true, how come we’ve never spent money on quality signings. There’s only so much Wenger can do with £10 million, and in some cases it’s worked (except Gervinho). Nowadays, you get what you pay for, fact.

    The team at which Berkhamp is an assistant manager, Ajax is out of UCL, and a perennial failure in Europe. Let him make his mark at other clubs before eyeing Arsenal. Arsrnal is not a place for Him to experiment. As a manager, Arsene Wenger is a decade ahead of him. Let all these ex Arsenals craving for limelight keep silent if they have nothing better to offer. Henry is a good example of patriotism. I am sure he does advise the manager but never insulting him publicly. If Wenger must go he does not deserve abuses judging by his contributions to the club. For some fans to have said Wenger is mad or has lost his head is too crude but I want to believe that such people are referring to their fathers, uncles or whoever is as old as Wenger there respective families.d Enough of the insults on the manager.

    @Artillery1, So your saying that a strong Arsenal squad taking 70 mins to play well against a league 2 team is a positive? with the team we played we should have dominated from the start, people can say all this about ramsey and gervinho but they are both premier league players, no premier league player should look poor against a LEAGUE 2 TEAM, no matter who we played that night with that performance we would have lost to any team that got into the quarter finals.

    Szszesny – Polish International
    Gibbs – 2 appereances for England
    Vermealean – Belgium International
    Mertersacker – German International
    Sagna – French International
    Coquelin – France U21 International
    Wilshere – England Internationall
    Ramsey – Welsh International
    Cazorla – Spanish Internation (European champions)
    Podolski – German International
    Gervinho – Ivory Coast International

    Look at that team, Wenger cant defend the players they all play for there countries and they cant beat a team are 4th in league 2 who have won only won 10 games out of 21, Players need a reality check, if they perform like that in the league then its not going to get any better

    We are basically playing 7 players against bradford 11 first and once we sub gervinho and ramsey it became 11 vs 11 u can see it after 70 mins.

    Oh yes every person calling for wenger head all very smart people lets bring in Harry redknapp and spend 200million and still come below where wenger gets us every year you all need to stop reading the sun a man utd paper and start supporting your team instead of hounding the man that’s kept us up there with nothing we field a 60 million pound team and lose ok so are you telling me if we had Torres up front making us a 110 million pound team that we wouldn’t have lost anyway money isn’t everything which is something you all seem to be forgetting and I won’t stand for arsenal becoming the next Chelsea demanding wins solely based on the amount of investment

    I personally think it’s too late for AW, you tell me what world class players would want to come to AFC. We can’t provide them with high wages, we can’t garentee CL football next year especially with how the season is going, we have no chance of winning any domestic cups or challenge for the league and we can’t keep our best players. Only 1 way out and that’s a new world class manager to attract new players. FACT!!!

    Guys in London please boycott the games. I’m all the way in johannesburg so I can’t do it but wish I could. I support Orlando Pirates FC down here. They also went through a 8 year trophy drought. The chairman was too busy concentrating on the 2010 world cup preparations. The team management was filled with people trying to be boss and everyone would have a say in every department. Good players where being sold or not played because they are not some club officials favourite player. The fans could only take so much and started boycotting games and complaining to the chairmans office. He finally took note, did a entire reshuffle, got a new manager who sold dead wood and trimmed the squad. What happened next? We won 2 trebbles in a row. Orlando pirates won 3 of the 4 available trophies in south Africa. London gooners we are trusting you cause we are to far to do anything. LET’S SAVE OUR BELOVED ARSENAL FROM GREEDY YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When has Ian Wright ever said anything positive about Wenger? Even when we were winning things and of course when we didn’t lose a league game in 03-04?

    He has not. He is the most negative ex-Arsenal player ever about our club. Even when we were winning stuff. Whenever a top player like Thierry wanted to leave, Wright would be saying, “He should go. If I was him I would go.”

    He is full of s#it. Even when he was a player we lost more than we won because of his need to get back page attention by provoking the ref. I can’t stand Wright.
