POLL: Who should be the next Arsenal legend to get a statue outside Emirates Stadium?
Thierry Henry, Tony Adams and Arsene Wenger are three Arsenal legends who have been honoured by the club in the form of statues outside Emirates Stadium in the past year.
Today it was the turn of former Gunners striker Dennis Bergkamp, the ‘Flying Dutchman’ who made over 400 appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side – scoring 120 goals in the process.
Club director Ken Friar unveiled the statue ahead of the 4-1 victory against Sunderland earlier this afternoon.
The original idea for statues around the Emirates Stadium was put forward by AISA Arsenal History Society at a meeting with Ivan Gazidis.
So who should be the next Arsenal legend honoured outside the club’s stadium?
Ian Wright and David Rocastle have both been mentioned for the permanent tribute, while David O’Leary, who holds Arsenal’s all-time record for appearances, is another name that has been suggested.
Wright recently joked that there won’t be enough room outside the stadium for anymore statues and that he’ll get one when Dennis Bergkamp is manager.
