Wolverhampton Wanderers star Matt Doherty has told the club’s official website that he is an Arsenal fan.

Doherty, who can operate as a right-wing back or as a left wing-back, has said that he was a “big” Arsenal fan growing up.

The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international – who is valued at €30 million (£27.29 million) by the CIES Football Observatory – has added that Dennis Bergkamp was his favourite player growing up.

Doherty is also pleased to have scored for Wolves in their 3-1 win against Arsenal at the Molineux Stadium in the Premier League on April 24, 2019.

Doherty has told Wolves’ official website:  “I was a big Arsenal fan growing up, Bergkamp was my favourite player, I used to get the kits for Christmas.

“Even now, I look out for their results and now I get to play and score against them, which is unbelievable.”
