Bergkamp keen to coach in England

ROTTERDAM - Former Arsenal striker Dennis Bergkamp sees a coaching future for himself in England, though only as a specialist assistant because he does not want the pressure of a head coaching job.

"I would like to train and work in England. Only not as head coach but as member of the staff, so I can work with the strikers," Bergkamp was quoted as saying by Dutch magazine JFK.

"Head coach is a job that takes 24 hours a day and doesn't suit me. As player I wasn't like that either.

"As head coach you come home, watch videos, go to other matches, prepare the next training ... that is not something I expect to do."

The 40-year-old Bergkamp, who retired in 2006 after an 11-year spell at Arsenal, achieved coaching qualifications in 2008.
