Featured Player Nicklas Bendtner Back In Training For The Bianconeri After Long Term Injury!


Featured player Nicklas Bendtner is finally back in full training, after a long process of rehabilation from a long term thigh/groin injury which required surgery the 6″4-1/2 technician is back in action. NB has not played for the Biaconeri for 4 months and will be hoping to push to help Antonio Conte’s Italian giants Juventus towards winning the Serie A title back to back.

Its been a frustrating campaign for NB only making 8 appearances all season, also having 4 months on the sidelines with off the field matters leading NB being punished by the DBU with a 6-month ban from the Denmark National team. I really hope the tables are turning for Bendtner and he can get his head down play a part in Juve’s push for their 29th Scudetto. In my opinion Nicklas Bendtner has an exceptional potential, i say potential because i feel most spectators have not seen the best of his ability yet he has very good technical ability with the ball at his feet for a guy of 6″4-6″5, can see passes and has good vision with decent mobility. Those of you guys that seen NB in his early days for Arsenal reserves and in his young Denmark days will know what im talking about, i hope he gets a chance the last push for Juve in the race for the Serie A 2013 title. Everyone is free to vent their own opinion but this is mine.

So football viewers, Arsenal, Denmark and Juventus… tell me what you think, leave your views, cheers people!

Agent: Nicklas Bendtner Could Possibily Be Back For Denmark’s Next Two World Cup Qualifiers In March


Featured player Nicklas Bendtner has been suffering from a long term injury after being injured in a tackle in a Coppa Italia game for Juventus in December. Bendtner is currently on a rehabilation course to strengthen the muscle thigh/groin before he is able to start working with the ball at his feet again and running at full pace. Nicklas’ agent Tom Brookes has said its even possible Bendtner could be back playing if everything goes to plan and it is in Bendtner’s best intentions to be fighting fit for Denmark’s two crucial qualifiers in March.

Brookes : ( NB Agent) :

We can not put a date on a comeback yet, but Nicklas is  working hard to get ready for the Danish national team in March. It is his great hope to become part of the national team squad for the two very important matches.

Nicklas’ rehabilitation goes according to plan, and he has recovered well from surgery. It will be a matter of time, if he can manage to recover enough to be combative, but he strives for it.

So Arsenal/Denmark/Juventus supporters, football fans all around the world that hold Nicklas in high regard and see his potential, what do you think ?

Morten Olsen: Bendtner Is Not Out For The Season

There has been many rumour son featured player Nicklas Bendtner’s injury in the past week. Juventus manager Antonio Conte’s quotes may have been translated worngly but Morten Olsen, The Denmark National team manager reckons nothing has changed and that Bendtner will be out for what was originally stated 3 months back in mid December.

Morten Olsen:

So far as I know, there is no change in the forecasts said three months. I’m certainly not been informed otherwise, and I might have been if the injury had been worse. So I still go out from that Nicklas is ready again in March.

I’ve seen his (Conte’s) Opinions, and I think the fact that he believes that the season is coming to an end when Nicklas is back. I’m not talking day to day with my players, but in this case I have not heard anything other than that he would be out for three months, says the Danish national team manager.

Juventus Will Keep Nicklas Bendtner For The Remainder Of The Season Despite 3 Month Injury


ImageFeatured player Nicklas Bendtner suffered a bad injury In last Wednesdays Coppa Italia game against Cagilira. NB was stretchered off via a stretcher after getting to the ball just before the defender. The Denmark Striker hasn’t had the best of luck in Turin and hasn’t had many opportunities to shine as he more often than not comes on to make 5-10 minute cameo’s in Serie A and now this long term injury.

If you look at things from the NB’s perspective you gotta just have a positive mindset, Juventus staff have said to the Italian Medias that despite Nicklas being injured for a good 3 months they still wanna keep him for the remainder of the Serie A n Uefa Champions League campaign and that obviously shows they believe in him as a striker. I hope he can get back asap to fitness, I’ve always rated Bendtner’s game and think he has great technique for his size standing at 194-195cm, quality first touch and that famous quote probably comes into the agenda again “good feet for a big man”  NB can see the pitch and has a good level of vision. Maybe he doesn’t excel in the physical battle and I don’t think he should be used as a targetman personally but thats just my opinion. I think he will have to work immensely hard to get back to the level of fitness and maybe i think at times he can be abit to laid back and could be maybe a little bit physically sharper so i think that will  be the main priority when he comes back from this lay off in late March. What do Denmark n AFC/Juve supporters and watchers think leave your comments below.

Flashback : . . . Nicklas Bendtner + *Videos*

At six feet three inches tall, it’s hard to believe that Nicklas Bendtner is still only 16 years of age.

What is just as impressive is that the powerfully built young Dane has the touch, control and agility that belies his sizeable frame.

Before I came to Arsenal I tended to play as the second centre-forward. I have also played half a season as a centre-back but it is as a striker that I believe that I am at my best. People have said that I have good control for a tall player but that’s the way it has always been for me. I don’t think it is because I have played in midfield and other positions that I have developed my control and passing, I think it is because I could play well with the ball at my feet that I was put in those positions in the first place.

Should, as is hoped, the chant, “there’s only one Nicky Bendtner,” one day resound around our new stadium, no truer words will have been sung in a football stadium.

The 17 year-old Dane is a mix between the old traditional English centre-forward and the more modern technically astute athlete of a striker. For a player who will not be 18 years of age until January, he cuts a colossal figure at over 6′ 3″, is a threat in the air but has good pace with and without the ball. Nicklas has an eye for goal and a pass and is quite possibly the quintessential all-round striker of which there are not too many, if any, of his type in the Premiership and beyond: “I think that is quite true,” he agrees.
