An interesting piece of news coming out of the Nottingham Forest camp on Monday was that Nicklas Bendtner looks as if he could start against Arsenal in the EFL Cup.
The former Gunner, who was released from Wolfsburg back in April, is apparently ready to start a game, according to Forest boss, Philippe Montanier.
It’ll be interesting to see Bendtner on the pitch again. He’s not had the most steady career – not because he’s not a decent enough striker when he gets his head down and applies himself, but because he gets distracted easily. He misbehaves, turns up later to training and throws his physical health to the wayside.
Saying this, he’s only 28 now so he’s got plenty of time to turn this around. Hopefully, his time with Forest will allow him to kick start his career again.
The Dane insists that he won’t ‘go crazy’ if he scores against Arsenal but he will celebrate, which he should!
