Dennis Nicolaas Maria Bergkamp is a Dutch former professional footballer, who until 21 December 2017 was the assistant manager at Ajax. Originally a wide midfielder, Bergkamp was moved to main striker and then to second striker, where he remained throughout his playing career.
He was born on 10th May 1969(51 years now) in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Bergkamp’s nickname is the “Non-Flying” Dutchman” due to his fear of flying.
In 2013 Bergkamp stated that his phobia was in fact caused by his time at Inter Milan, in which they regularly travelled to away games in small aeroplanes.
So during his days in Arsenal he would rather not play a match that requires long distance travel by flights and it was understandable because if he had a short distance travel for a match he would usually travel by train to play it while others flew on air.
His career ended in 2006 after playing for the Arsenal football club
