Nicklas Bendtner has been at Arsenal since 2005, needless to say the 6’5’’ Dane has had trouble cementing himself as a first team player since his arrival. This largely comes down to his inconsistency to perform.
The 24-year-old striker has been sent out on loan to clubs like Birmingham City in the past and most recently Sunderland in order to gain some first-team football.
He seemed to perform better whenever he was loaned out by the Gunners. Big fish in a small pond springs to mind.
Bendtner’s has made over 98 Premier League appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side, scoring 22 goals and chalking up 15 assists as well – a record which isn’t that impressive. But not the most disastrous either.
I think it’s fair to say that he’s had a number of chances to show his stuff at Arsenal, but he just hasn’t taken them.
But after his exploits in Poland and Ukraine this summer, does Bendtner deserve one more chance at Arsenal? I think so.
The Denmark international can score goals, we know that much. His confidence in himself is clearly unmatched and is a key trait for any striker to have. Perhaps he just has too much.
Finally, he is still young and CAN get better and even though he sometimes leaves many fans frustrated with his performances, I do see Bendtner improving.
One more chance for Bendtner?
