It doesn’t really matter which club you support, you probably appreciated Marc Overmars in the 1990s.
But now the Arsenal legend has reportedly agreed a return back to the club next summer.
The 44-year-old is currently the director of football at Ajax, but has been rumoured to be heading back to North London after the end of the season.
According to Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, the Dutchman is in line to return to the Gunners, believed to be in a coaching role.
Only recently did Overmars fuel speculation over his future back to Arsenal, revealing that the life of a director isn’t exciting.
He said: “I think there is a list with some names and I might be on it, but it’s not that exciting yet.
“I know the club pretty well, I have always kept in touch with Arsenal. So in that respect it is not surprising, because I’ve had a few good years.”
However the former Barcelona winger only recently signed a new four-year to extend his stay with the Eredivisie giants.
Arsene Wenger has been reluctant to bring former stars back to the club – though former Premier League champions Steve Bould and Jens Lehmann both hold high coaching positions at Arsenal.
Overmars – a member of the 1997/98 double-winning campaign – established himself as a firm fan favourite during his three-season stint.
He built up a reputation of scoring in the big games – including a goal away at Old Trafford in a 1-0 win over Manchester United, a brace against Everton on the final game in the 1998 season and netting the opener against Newcastle in the FA Cup final.
Nicknamed the ‘Roadrunner’ due to his blistering pace down the wings, Overmars was named as the 12th greatest Arsenal player of all time.
Before his £25million to Barca, he found the back of the net 40 times in 141 appearances in all competitions.
