NicklasBendtner is currently in Danemark after having been released by Wolfsburg last month.
He was supposed to stay at the club until the end of his contract in 2017, but his contract was terminated after a host of disciplinary issues.
Bendtner joined Wolfsburg in 2014 and managed to make 47 appearances for the club. But it is on the disciplinary front that things did not work between Wolfsburg and Bendtner. In February, he was fined for driving a Mercedes car to training while the club is sponsored by Volkswagen while in April was fined for being late to training sessions.
Wolfsburg director Allofs has stated that he was disappointed that the deal did not work out between NicklasBendtner and the team. He said that he was hoping that the cooperation will be fruitful for both sides, but so far he has not been convinced by the striker’s performance. He stated that in such circumstances, it is better to stop the partnership. He wished NicklasBendtner all the best for his career. Read more »
Nicklas Bendtner has been an infamous player for quite a while now and many have wondered what kind of spell he had over Wolfsburg to not let him go.
Many have been questioning his behavior, his late appearances and plays of late but that’s no longer concern. Good news for all of the haters and bad news for all of the still die hard true fans of the player, his hold (or whatever voodoo magic he had over Wolfsburg) is now finally over.
While he’s described as a Danish mad talented striker, he joined up with the Bundesliga side when moving from Arsenal about two years ago. This comes at a loss though because while he has played 44 games, he has only made 9 goals total. As a result of these plays and his attitude as of late, Wolfsburg is finally cutting the chord and making the smart decision.
Wolfburg’s own Director of Sports, Klaus Allofs said on the club’s own website that the current situation the team was in because of Bendtner was nowhere near satisfactory and it wasn’t acceptable. He went on to state that it was completely unsatisfactory and that it wasn’t able to be endured anymore. The news comes as they had a meeting in secret on Wednesday and even sat down with his agent to discuss possible solutions for the future of the striker. Read more »
In the opinion of Aritz Aduriz, the veteran player of Athletic Bilbao, Neymar might be one of the most accomplished and well known individual in the soccer world, but, not everything is right about his attitude and he definitely needs to improve it.
Aduriz was indulged in quite an animated tussle with Neymar on the pitch during the recent game between Barcelona and Athletic.
Not only did Aduriz foul Neymar, but, he also seemed to be deliberately getting in physical contact with him.
However, the Spaniard later clarified that nothing was intentional on his part and he even conveyed his apologies to Neymar for whatever happened, but, he did say that he wished the Barcelona superstar could bring a little change in the way he goes about his game on the pitch.
Post that Cup game, which resulted in a 1-2 loss for Athletic, Aduriz, the only player to have found the net for the home team, said, “I was not looking to hurt him by any means. Those sorts of stuffs happen in a game.”
“But, I would like to say that although Neymar is one of the greatest players around, he should change his attitude a little bit.” Read more »
Despite transfer rumours heavily linking him with a move away from Wolfsburg in the summer, striker Nicklas Bendtner has stated that his intention is to remain with the German outfit for the time being.
After making the move to Wolfsburg on a permanent basis from Arsenal, Bendtner was hoping to feature more regularly in the first-team. As the Danish international was at the peak of his powers, his expectations were seen as being reasonable although his goalscoring record in recent years has been extremely poor. Wolfsburg have not provided in the opportunity to feature in the first-team regularly despite being in several competitions over the campaign.
This may have been down to the involvement in the Bundesliga title race along with Bayern Munich, who were favourites all along the season. Despite this, Wolfsburg kept in contention with Pep Guardiola’s team and only narrowly lost out on the title. It is expected that the upcoming season will be a very positive one for Wolfsburg especially due to the strength in depth. A lot rests upon their chances of keeping midfielder Kevin De Bruyne at the club. The former Chelsea winger has been linked with Manchester City. Bendtner, meanwhile, has been the target of clubs in Portugal and his hometown Denmark. Read more »
