Dennis Bergkamp's career in football
Dennis Bergkamp scores against Southampton
When Bergkamp moved to Arsenal in August 1995 he left with the words of Inter president Massimo Moratti ringing in his ears: "They will be lucky if he scores 10 goals this season."

At first that seemed prescient with "Desperate Den" headlines accompanying each match that passed without a goal.

But after seven blanks he scored a brace against Southampton at Highbury to set the ball rolling.

"You could call it a bad start if you compare it to everything that came after. It took time to get used to the change from Italy, but I enjoyed it and once that first goal went in it took the pressure off."
