Arsenal legend Son Sign’s for Watford

Football News

The son of Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has signed a six-month contract with Watford.

After a failed trial with the Gunners in November, Mitchel, 22, has hooked up with the Hornets’ Under-23s.

Bergkamp Junior spent a week at London Colney with Steve Bould’s Under-23s but was not retained.

If he is inspired by the Championship side, there is an opportunity to extend his tenure at Watford.

Bergkamp has been a free agent since last summer when, after 9 years at the club, he left Dutch second-tier side Almere City.

He plays as an attacking midfielder and he can withstand the burden of becoming the son of a legend of the game with reassured fans.

Bergkamp is the latest in a long line of sons who have sought to imitate their famous fathers’ footballing careers, including Lady Harvey of Phil Neville and Boy Daniel of Paolo Maldini.

He told the Watford website: “It was difficult [to be compared all the time] when I was younger, but I have adapted to it now. It’s just my name and I’m a player on my own, and hopefully, I will leave a legacy of my own. To him and him, he was incredible. He’s my No. 1 fan and he’s always been there for me. It’s a privilege to have him as my dad and to work with him on my game.”
