Arsene Wenger became Arsenal boss in Bergkamp's second season and with his arrival the Highbury revolution began in earnest.
That 'Boring, Boring Arsenal' tag was soon nothing more than a distant memory with Bergkamp orchestrating proceedings.
"I feel I had a contribution to Arsenal's attacking style but there are so many other factors.
"I was part of the start and then the boss came, Patrick Vieira, Emmanuel Petit, Marc Overmars and then on to this team where they're basically all world-class players. Maybe 15 years ago they wouldn't have played for Arsenal, but they do now and I helped that."
