Arsene Wenger walked away in 2018 after falling out of the Premier League's top four, with Unai Emery now charged with the task of returning former glories to Emirates Stadium.
Fergie, who won 13 top-flight titles in his 27 years at Old Trafford got into numerous heated arguments with Wenger, who won 10 major honours in 22 years with the Gunners. Such were the problems at Arsenal, whoever inherited the Frenchman's mantle had to first rid the club of the former hamstrings before they could implement their own culture and identity.
"It's different to what I am used to, with a less English players and more foreign players", Bergkamp said.
'It's hard to say whether it is better or worse but better is always shown in trophies, which aren't there at the moment.
'On one hand, there are so many clubs who have improved so quickly to a high level, whereas Arsenal, maybe improved, but not to that level. "Then the pressure is really there and I think to come out of that period in a very healthy situation was a little bit of a miracle". "You draw, you're seventh; you win a game, you're third". "As well, I have a huge respect for this country because there is a big passion for the game. I see some characteristics of his game, especially off the ball, that don't happen at the moment", he said.
"I don't think [they can challenge for the title] at the moment on what I've seen".
'Man City appears to be like to be to me to safe the very best seemingly capability to battle in opposition to Liverpool, but so long as long you're not too far-off it's seemingly you'll maybe be ready to hope'.
