Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has taken the next step in his managerial career.
Bergkamp has been appointed assistant manager at Ajax.
The Dutchman, 42, had been in charge of the club's youth system, but has been promoted to working with the first-team under Frank De Boer, his former club and international colleague.
Bergkamp, like De Boer, came through the youth system in the Dutch capital before achieving notable success elsewhere the continent. The ex-Gunner retired from football in 2006 but has since gradually earned his coaching spurs at the club where he started.
