Giovanni van Bronckhorst admits desire to return to Arsenal as manager

Former Gunner Giovanni van Bronckhorst admits it would be a "dream" to one day manage Arsenal.

The Dutchman spent two years in north London where he won the Premier League title and two FA Cups under Arsene Wenger.

He left for Barcelona in 2003 but has since become a manager following his retirement in 2010.

Van Bronckhorst took the reins at Feyenoord, the club where he saw out his playing days, and is now in charge of Chinese side Guangzhou R&F.

He claims to be enjoying his time in Asia but has made no secret of his desire to return to Europe.

"At the moment I'm enjoying my work in China. But as a player I had ambition and as a coach I have ambition.

"The Premier League for me is the number one league in the world to be working at and, for me, it is definitely an ambition to work in," he told Sky Sports.

"I always said if I could coach the teams I played for it would be a big dream."

Former Arsenal man Mikel Arteta currently occupies the dugout at the Emirates having taken charge in December.

It is the Spaniard's first job as a No 1 having served as Pep Guardiola's assistant at Manchester City.
