Bendtner faces the blame for his long injury lay off
By 1970’s Gooner
Nicklas Bendtner’s problems with his groin began with that car accident he suffered at the end of 2009 on his way to training at London Colney.
He has now admitted that he compounded the injury by forcing himself to play for Denmark in the World Cup.
Speaking to Danish paper “Politiken” he said:
“Both you and I can figure out that if I had a two and a half month break, rather than going to South Africa, I would had been much further ahead now. I would have been close to playing again, both for Arsenal and the national team”
"I am a young player, but I do not know when such an opportunity comes again - that I can play in a World Cup finals. And again, no, I have not regretted anything”
The impetuousness of youth I say…
Just as well Wenger learnt from last season’s experience and made sure he got another striker in otherwise we would have been playing with Arshavin up front again for the next four weeks or so.
