Inter Milan 1993 - No.10 Bergkamp.


Dutch master Dennis Bergkamp attracted the attention of several top European clubs as a result of his standout performances for Ajax. Johan Cruyff advised him to join Barcelona, but Bergkamp was insistent on playing in Italy. He considered Serie A "the biggest league at the time" and agreed a £7.1 million move to Inter in 1993. 

One runs out of superlatives in describing Bergkamp as a player: his perfect touch, passing of incredible vision, sublime finishing, out of this world skills, not to mention selflessness.
Bergkamps first season had many highlights. The Dutchman scored a spectacular volley against Rapid Bucharest and with 8 goals out of 11 games he helped Inter to win 1993-94 Uefa Cup.

However his time with the Nerazurri was marred by injuries, a managerial merry go round, the demanding Italian press and a defensive setup of the team that Bergkamp didnt feel played to his strengths. It seemed Cruyffs theory, that Italian football was not suited to Bergkamp, was correct.
Having opted to leave, Bergkamp's decision to join Arsenal was made quickly.
