    Bergkamp is a special player for me, I was there when he won the Uefa Cup with Inter in 94, just great memories. Too bad he could never fullfil his potential in Italy.

    He said his plan was move to Italian club for 4 years and then go to England, and go back to Holland. But he only made 2 years of Italy, and never got back home...(It was on TV before the game )

    Excuse my language but that us a load of rubbish crap. I wonder if you have even seen a game of him when playing for us!
    I almost watched every single game of his and he truly was mediocre at best. I still have this incredible image of when he missed a sitter and you could see all the fans and we are talking about the red and orange sector on their feet shouting at the guy. Can not have been too pleasant for him standing on the pitch. Dennis like many others just didnít cut it Ė personally I think it was the immense pressure of delivering straight away which he didnít cope with.

    yes i saw him play at inter, the problem was we played him as a striker rather than a playmaker forward, people expected him to be a goalscorer but they didn't understand him.

    unfortunately dennis wasn't anything at Inter. From what I remember it was also a hard time for Inter back then...it was 93/94 season were you almost got relegated. Let's say the situation wasn't the best for him either.
    Italy wasn't really his league, he was/is still a quality player however. He needed a different environment, like that of the EPL. It doesn't say much about a player's quality if he fails somewhere...Laudrup was crap in Serie A too and then became one of the best players of the 90ies.

    Anyway..the Arsenal Dennis was one of the better players I have seen. His touch was simply incredible and even more his footballing brain. He was an incredibly intelligent player..

    That's not it. He was too young, immature, and he was way too lazy on the pitch, god knows the fans didn't like that. They started calling him Sleeping Beauty ffs.
