Dennis Bergkamp is not returning to Arsenal in a coaching capacity – yet.

It was reported this week that Arsène Wenger was about to bring the legendary striker into his backroom staff.

Speaking ahead of tonight's game at Olympiacos, the manager denied the rumour but added that if and when he needed assistance he would look at those who had previously played for the Club.

“Dennis Bergkamp will be a very good coach, but at the moment, we have not looked for anybody,” said Wenger.

“If one day we do, I will consider former players, but at the moment, we have not.”
