Nicklas Bendtner told he must leave Arsenal - by Denmark coach Morten Olsen
Striker has not been getting a lot of playing time at Emirates
Wednesday 13 November 2013
Nicklas Bendter has been told to quit Arsenal in January – by his coach at Denmark Morten Olsen.
The 25-year-old striker looked set to leave the Gunners during the summer after being sent out on two loan spells in the past two seasons but with no takers he has stayed on at the Emirates, where he has been mainly used as a late substitute in matches this season.
“Bendtner scored two great goals for us in the game against Italy [in the 2-2 draw in October], but there were also things he lacked in the match and this only comes through playing games,” Olsen told reporters.
“It is for this reason that he should find something new this winter. I think he will make the recommendation to himself and that is the main thing. Footballers want to play football.
“He needs to play. He has maybe 10 years left to go; he must use them well,” Olsen added.
