Meanwhile, Denmark manager Morten Olsen, has said Bendtner isn’t really a right winger and that he is more suited to the central striker role with sometimes dropping to the left.
Olsen said . . .
Nicklas is a central striker who need to be pulled out slightly to left, from which he can then move into the pitch and use his good striploin.But Nicklas may just not be used over on the right edge, so he becomes very isolated to only allow winger to put the ball over, and it is not his strength.
