Bruce: Bendtner Has Unbelievable Talent
Ahead of their Premiership clash, Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has spoken of young Arsenal forward, Nicklas Bendtner in glowing terms.
The 20-year-old Denmark international was on loan at Birmingham last season when Steve Bruce was the manager there.
Bruce, who joined Latics earlier this season, will come face to face with Arsene Wenger’s league-leading side tomorrow at the JJB Stadium.
“You see Nicklas and he’s 6ft 4in and you think of him as about 26 years old,” Bruce said. “You forget he’s a kid. He led the line in a Championship side at Birmingham at just 18.
“He’s different, he has unbelievable talent, he’s got belief in himself that he would be a player. He’s got a swagger and he’s hungry for success.”
