Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp bade farewell to Arsenal, Ajax and football on Saturday, when he played his last game for the Gunners against the club that first made him a household name. On an emotional occasion, Bergkamp's testimonial against Dutch giants Ajax attracted a crowd of 54,000, thanking him for 11 years of service to the north London club. Footballing stars of past and present also turned out to honour the cultured 37-year-old striker. Bergkamp made 423 appearances and scored 120 goals for Arsenal, and 122 goals in 239 appearances for Ajax. (AP)
