Bendtner Issues an Ultimatum
I fear the Arsenal future of Nicklas Bendtner may be called into question after he inadvertently issued an ultimatum to the Arsenal manager.
Bendtner has spent this season on loan at Birmingham and it has been quite a sucessful period for the Danish striker, but now it appears he is demanding at least a place on the Arsenal first team bench before he will return to the North London outfit.
'It's Arsenal who decide,' Bendtner told Ritzau. 'But I know that they will not call me back unless they have at least got a place for me in the A squad.'
'I will not go back to play for the reserves. The least that I should get is a place on the bench.'
It is a shame that a few goals in the championship makes Bendtner believe he is a world beater, because there is no denying that the boy has talent, but as we know, the gulf between Championship and the Premiership is a large one.
Does anyone remember the last talented young player to demand a place in the first team?
Step forward David Bentley.
