Nicklas Bendtner, A.K.A Lord Bendtner, the Denmark international who spent a splendid 9 years with Arsenal now line up against them today, as Arsenal play Nottingham Forest in the EFL cup clash.
Arsene Wenger seemed to be knowing Nicklas Bendtner the most, as he had a lot of good things to talk about him in the press conference. The manager said he had it all, he had it all in his locker to make a fantastic career .
The manager said:
It was a surprise to me that Nicklas signed for Nottingham Forest, but at some stage he needs to restart his career,
You have to adapt and we are in a job where we have to show we are able to put our effort in everywhere and compete.
Sometimes when you are a player of his quality, you just need an opportunity. We know he is a top-quality player, but he needs to play.
He was very young [when I first saw him], 16 or 17 years old and I thought he was very interesting because he has a good technique, good stature, good pace, good in the air, good link play – he had it all in the locker.
Commenting on the player’s attitude, about him being overconfident, Arsene Wenger claimed they were not true, as the player had a good career at Arsenal, while some seasons just didn’t go so well for him. He felt that Bendtner took the right decision as he needed a restart to his career.
Against Arsenal, he feels that Nicklas Bendtner will have a point to prove as he had a good restart in his career which was crucial for him. Also playing at a level that Bendtner never used to, only made him humble and strong the manager said.
Will Lord Bendtner have a point to prove to Arsenal tonight?
