    MARC OVERMARS hopes to make a surprise return to Arsenal after being forced to retire because of a knee injury, writes ANDREW DILLON.
    The Dutch winger, 31, wants to help his old club recruit the next generation of champions as a scout.
    Overmars won the Double with the Gunners in 1998 before joining Barcelona for £25million.
    He said: “When I left Arsenal, they said I could always come back to work for them as a scout.
    “If the offer is still open, I would love to take them up on it.”
    Highbury chief Arsène Wenger said: “I am really sad to hear that Marc has been forced to retire.
    “He’ll never be forgotten as a result of his contribution to our Double.”

    Great news ! I would have preferred to see him make a return as a coach but apparently being a scout interests him more.

    Fantastic news.

    Imagine how likely it is for a dutch kid to come to Arsenal if Overmars is telling them to!

    He'd be very useful for bringing in Dutch talent, while we can blend them with the African talent we keep bringing in. If that works out we'll have a very nice looking team. Sign him on, I say.

    I'll have Wenger's daughter to be Arsenal's manager in years to come. By the way, she's only.. 5-6 years old? Or did I remember wrongly :?:
