When Nicklas Bendtner announced at the end of last season that he wanted to leave, it barely caused a ripple amongst Arsenal fans compared to the furore over Sami Nasri’s treachery.
Nobody complained, in fact everyone hoped that Wenger would use the proceeds to bring in someone who could actually put the ball in the back of the net! But despite the Dane fully expecting a top European club coming in to buy him for a paltry £10m, he ended up having to accept a loan move to Sunderland on the last day of the transfer window.
He has now (yet again) said that he has no intention of returning to Arsenal, and fully expects another Champions League team to snap him up! He said: “As I have said before, I will not return to Arsenal,”
“I never really got the chance and then I was unfortunate with injuries. But now I will hopefully have a good season at Sunderland and with a fantastic European Championship ahead, it looks positive.
“I want to play in the Champions League.”
Last year he said that he intended to win the Golden Boot at the World Cup with Denmark, perhaps in his self-centred dreamworld he thinks he will win it at the Euros instead and someone like Barcelona will come in for him after the tournament!
Dream on Nicklas, do you realise you have just told Sunderland fans that you are just using them as stepping stone to a bigger club……
