Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp was immortalised with a statue outside the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, with the man himself making a speech at the unveiling.
Dennis is speaking, he admits he's emotional. "They asked me if they could build a statue. I said 'You don't have to ask me!'" #DB10Statue— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 22, 2014
Dennis thanks the fans, his old team-mates, his old manager and his friends and family. "This is a beautiful club." #DB10Statue— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 22, 2014

DB10: "You (the fans) were very patient with me. We had some comments. We proved them all wrong." #afc— gunnerblog (@gunnerblog) February 22, 2014
Bergkamp's statue joins those of fellow Gunner greats Thierry Henry, Herbert Chapman and Tony Adams outside Arsenal's ground.
