In a video of Saturday's conversation posted by the club, Bergkamp can be seen telling them importance of English players.
"We learned a lot from the English guys," he says.
"They know what English football means. They know what Arsenal means. And you guys know that as well.
"So if you bring that to the team, fantastic. You know that aggression, that passion, that's what I like about you. You can tell you are English guys."
