[Pictures] Leaked Images Of New Dennis Bergkamp Statue To Be Unveiled Outside The Emirates

By on February 27, 2013

It looks as though Arsenal are going to be adding another statue outside of the Emirates sometime soon with pictures emerging on the internet suggesting Dennis Bergkamp will be the latest club legend to be immortalised in stone.

Bergy is no doubt one of the all-time greats of the game and deserves to join the likes of Tony Adams and Thierry Henry in being commemorated outside the Grove. As you can see from the images below, the statue will show the Dutchman controlling the ball in mid-air, reminding us all of his superb touch and control.

As you can just about see in the background, the makers have a collage of pictures of Bergkamp to help them create this masterpiece but I’m not totally convinced the likeness is there in his face. Perhaps this isn’t the final draft, but I still can’t wait to see it unveiled outside the stadium.

Photo credit goes out to @chippingvon for giving us a sneak peak at these pictures:

    At last the board is waking up to the reality. Bergkamp is the most technical player I’ve ever seen wearing Arsenal shirt. Pictures of him playing for us bring tears, yes TEARS to my eyes in a time when we struggle to beat Aston Villa at home and have very little to be cheerful about our team. Cant wait to see that statue and take pictures with me to leave for kids and their kids.
