Bendtner On His Season and Iniesta
Interviewer: Let’s look at your season as a whole. You’ve scored 15 goals in all competitions, and you are the top scorer aged 21 or under in the Premier League. Pretty encouraging . . .
Bendtner: I didn’t know that, but its quite a good stat! Did you know that i’m also our top scorer in this calendar year? Obviously that’s nice – Ade, Robin and i are all quite close to each other in the charts so we’ll see if i can get a hat-trick against Stoke and finish right up there! I think i’ve progressed all season.
You know, I’ve never tried to hide the fact that i had two months in the Autumn where, in my opinion, i played like a Sunday League player. I tried to work hard and do all the right stuff but it just didn’t seem to go for me.
But then all of a sudden there came a turning point and since then i’ve got stronger and stronger -overall i feel quite proud of the way the season has gone personally, but on the other hand there are things i look at and think ” you could have done better ” as well. But i only see that as a positive because it means i can improve for next season.
Interviewer: Who’s been your player of 2008/09 – anywhere in the world?
Bendtner: Andres Iniesta at Barcelona, without a doubt. Every tie I’ve seen Barcelona his technique, movement and passing have struck me – you can’t take that away from him. And this season he’s produced a lot of assists and important goals. You don’t always hear his name ahead of some others, but people who know football can acknowledge what he does for the game.
