'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rumour mill troubles Nicklas

Rumours apparently circulating among football circles in Scandinavia and less surprisingly on fans forums that Nicklas Bendtner`s persistent groin injury threatens to end his football career have brought a sharp rejection from the Danish striker.

The injury is being linked to a car accident he had in September of last year though he played a number of games for both club and country before limping out of the game at home to Spurs at the end of October. Speaking to a journalist at a Sports website in Denmark Nicklas says:

"It's crazy to hear such things, I can reject them completely. I have been very concerned about it, but it has not even been mentioned as an issue that it could cost me my career. Never. I reject the idea completely, and I cannot understand how the story arose - it is nonsense. There will be many things said about me, but this rumour is quite appalling, I think."

Though he has recently started training with the ball, wary of adding to any doubts, he and the club have avoided putting any firm date on his return.

"Now, I look forward, and there is much to look forward to. I expect to be ready to come back before too long, but will not put a date on it. I have now developed a plan and a timetable with Arsenal that I am working from, but we keep the details to ourselves to avoid unnecessary pressure" he said.

As if to add further reassurance that his physical impairment isn`t too restrictive Nicklas also expects to become a father in a few months as his fiancée, wealthy Baroness Caroline Fleming, is pregnant.

"Everything goes according to plan with the football - and off the field" assures the Dane "When I just have to get the last things to work in my life: to be back on the pitch in top form, it could not be better."

i feel that i am one of the few people who really like this lad. he scored against barcelona, set theo's goal up and was heavily involved in the penalty. he is quality in the air and his hold up play is world class. we seem to forget how many important goals he scores. for me the winner against spurs proves how important he can be for us.

It always worries me when the club refuse to give a time period on the injury.
gronedrone
Actually, it worries me when the club does give a time period, as its invariably wrong. This is better, keep it quiet and announce a comeback when they are sure.

My friends put Bendtner down and laugh when I talk about liking the guy. I honestly think a front three of Chamak, RvP, and Bendtner with any combination of Cesc, Arshavin, Rosicky, Nasri feeding them is enough to terrify any defense in the world.
smithdj74
It most certainly isn't - Bendter terrifies no one, yet. Who'd play on the left of that 3 as well? And no midfielders with a more defensive mindset?
shewore
That's why it worries me, it tends to be long term injuries that are the most difficult to give a time period for. And for the most part the club gets almost all the prognoses right.
gronedrone
i agree with shewore on this one. its great having fabregas nasri and rosicky but we need to have some balance. song and diaby bring us this balance, song more so, he should be in every starting 11 when fit.

"As if to add further reassurance that his physical impairment isn`t too restrictive Nicklas also expects to become a father in a few months" Either that or there's a very happy milkman out there somewhere. ;)

Bendtner is one of my favorite players at Arsenal, he never quits trying, even if he misses several easy chances he just keeps going. Even with the scum fans booing him. I find it funny that he would be abused but Arshavin missed a *****e ton of chances last week and not a peep was heard...strange that... p.s his other half is quite tasty, lucky him
