Sky Sports legend Geoff Shreeves wins over Premier League club's fanbase as he reveals best player in history | The Sun

GEOFF SHREEVES has won over a club's fanbase by revealing the best player in Premier League history.

The Sky Sports legend earned "respect" from Arsenal supporters after naming Dennis Bergkamp as the player he enjoyed watching the most.

Shreeves is a beloved figure amongst fans after spending 30 years as a reporter for Sky Sports.

However, he quit earlier this summer after being asked to take a pay cut as part of a major cull of reporters.

He continues to connect with supporters, though, including Arsenal fans.

Appearing on The Inside Scoop podcast, Shreeves was asked who he thought was the best player in Premier League history.

"I don’t know if you can say he’s the best player in Premier League history.

"If you said to me ‘which player did I enjoy watching the most?’

"It’s a ridiculous question because so many have been so good but, me personally, Bergkamp."

Gunners fans were quick to react after Shreeves' answer was shared to social media.
