Nicklas Bendtner joins Wolfsburg: Striker moves on a free from Arsenal and chooses the No 3 shirt
Danish striker will hope three is the magic number
Meet Wolfsburg's new No 3, it's not a left-back, it's striker Nicklas Bendtner.
The Danish forward chose the number after moving on a free from Arsenal, which is usually associated with defenders, after being told by his mother to pick the shirt.
Bentder will be hoping that three truly is the magic number during his spell in Germany.
"We want to have a good run in all three competitions we are in this season and for that we need players who know these challenges and are used to them," said Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking at the player's official presentation.
