Nicklas Bendtner tells Danish press: “The plan is for me to move on from Arsenal”

Nicklas Bendtner tells Danish press: The plan is for me to move on from ArsenalThe comments made by Nicklas Bendtner to Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten will come as no surprise with the much maligned striker struggling for playing time at Arsenal.

Even with Olivier Giroud dropped of late, due to off-the-field indiscretions, Arsene Wenger has largely chosen Yaya Sanogo in the Frenchman’s place.

Bendtner spoke candidly to Jyllands-Posten ahead of Denmark’s clash with England on Wednesday and admitted his Arsenal career is all but over.

The Arsenal forward admitted: “I’m not going to stay at Arsenal – first team football is what I’m after.”

Bendtner continued: “The plan is for me to move on. I’m ready for a new challenge.”

And, with regards to holding down a spot in the Denmark side: “I know of the conditions. To keep my spot I need to play regularly.”

Bendtner also defended his reputation within football circles and said that some even perceive him to be a “psychopath.”

The Danish forward said: “My self-esteem and my confidence as a footballer has not changed, but there are many who think all I do is party. That I am completely indifferent to football, and it’s the wrong version of reality. When I find my right club, I am sure that everything will be all right in itself, if there are no more injuries.”
