Bendtner: I Don’t Want To Be A Supersub
Young Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner remains confident he can develop into more than just an impact player for Arsenal.
The 20-year-old made only his second start in the Barclays Premier League at Wigan last weekend but come off the bench some 18 times this season, netting six goals overall.
“I need to obviously get more games,” Bendtner told Arsenal TV.
“The more you play with the team as a regular starter, then the more you get to learn and know the team.
“If I can get a good run in the side, then I am sure you will see that I can do it.”
Arsenal face Middlesbrough, who remain the only side to have beaten the Gunners in the Premier League this season, on Saturday and Bendtner knows there is little margin for error as the race for the title enters a crucial phase.
He said: “We have had a lot of games which ended up with draws when we should have won.
“We all know we have to beat Middlesbrough to get towards winning the trophy, so we will give everything we can.”
