Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has become the latest former player to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.

The Dutchman joins former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry, as well as the likes of Alan Shearer, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane and Frank Lampard in receiving the Premier League’s highest individual honour.

“I’m honoured. It feels special to be part of a small group of players who got the recognition of playing in the strongest league in the world,” Bergkamp reacted.

“The Premier League made me a better player. I’m extremely proud if people say that I was one of the first foreign players who added something to the English game.

“The Premier League most definitely made me a better player. From the moment I arrived in England I’ve embraced the English mentality and passion for football, it suited me and my style of play.

“Playing every game against good and tough opponents meant I improved all the time. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.”
