Arsenal striker Dennis Bergkamp will stay at Highbury for another season.
The 36-year-old former Dutch international hoped to persuade Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to extend his 10-year career at the club.
"I'll still be here - it will be OK," Bergkamp, who was substituted after 65 minutes of the FA Cup final, confirmed to BBC Radio Five Live
Wenger admitted after victory over Manchester United: "Dennis probably should stay on for one more year."
Wenger has stressed Bergkamp cannot expect a starting role but the striker believes he can last another campaign.
Bergkamp joined Arsenal from Inter Milan in 1995 for £7.5m.
And Bergkamp has repeatedly made it clear he wants to end his career at the club before retiring from the sport.
