You could see Bendtner tonight in a possibility of three different roles, centre forward as the number 9, or operating out on either wing. Where do you think Wenger should use the Dane in tonights game ? let us know your opinion . . .
Keld Bordinggaard ( under 21 coach of Denmark ) has said he won’t push Bendtner into playing in this Summer’s U-21 European Championships in Denmark.
U21 manager said . . .
We will not do anything to persuade Bendtner. I have felt like that if you have to persuade a player,to be at a U21 Championships, one will not be a dedicated player.
