Danish international striker Nicklas Bendtner, who is currently on loan at Sunderland from Arsenal, has stated that he never wants to go back to his parent club, even after his loan spell at Sunderland comes to an end and would love to make his move to the Stadium of Light a permanent one.
Bendtner, who is a product of the fabled youth academy system at Arsenal, has constantly criticized the manager Arsene Wenger for squeezing him out of the club and has also said that at one point of time last year, he considered quitting playing football altogether, so frustrated he was with life with Arsene Wenger and on the bench at Arsenal. Sunderland have the option of making his move to the Stadium of Light a permanent one but whether they will want to do that considering the fact that Nicklas Bendtner hasn’t really been all that good at Sunderland even leaves many to worry about the future of the Dane.
He started his Arsenal career with a bang, scoring goals for fun but all of a sudden the goals dried up, his touch eluded him and he ended up on the bench week after week, which left him frustrated. He even got very few opportunities to start for the club in the League Cup matches and when the offer came from Sunderland for a loan move, he readily agreed.
Now he has come out a statement that will no doubt put his future at Arsenal at stake, even if he rediscovers his scoring touch. It was reported at one time that Italian giants Juventus were interested in signing Nicklas Bendtner from Arsenal but nothing came of it and if Sunderland also don’t exercise the clause of buying him, his future in top class football would be really very bleak.
