Dennis Bergkamp proves he's still got it with perfect volley during Ajax training

Former Arsenal star shows off his wonderful technique

Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has shown he is still capable of the type of skill that made him a hero in north London.

Ajax, the club where the Dutch master started his career, have released a video that shows the side's assistant manager executing a perfect volley into the bottom corner.

Bergkamp, whose statue now sits outside the Emirates, played more than 400 games for the Gunners, scoring 120 goals.

He helped the club to the double in 1998, winning a total of three league titles and four FA Cups in 11 years at the club.

Bergkamp was also nominated by Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge - he in turn nominated former Arsenal team-mates Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry.


Ajax are currently second in the Eredivisie on goal difference, having won both of their opening two matches.
