How Nicklas Bendtner must regret the day he claimed to be one of the best strikers in the world.
"If you ask me if I am one of the best strikers in the world," he said. "I say yes because I believe it.
"When I see that other strikers score a lot of goals, I realise I need to score those goals. But I think everything else in my game is right.
"Even if I believe I can still improve. But the goals are the last thing I need to add and when I do I believe I will be the player I want to be. One of the best."
From the moment Bendtner claimed to be one of the world's finest, the 29-year-old became something of a laughing stock amongst football fans.
Unsurprisingly, his career has plummeted since.
He joined Wolfsburg on a free transfer from Arsenal in 2014, spending two frustrating years in the Bundesliga before returning to England with Nottingham Forest.
But again Bendtner struggled, even in the Championship, and he was sold to Rosenborg for an undisclosed fee in March.
Three goals in five starts suggests life is going pretty well for the striker in Norway - and his latest against Sarpsborg was an absolute peach.
In the video below, Bendtner latches on to a long through ball, controls it with the outside of his right foot and fires past the goalkeeper into the top-right corner.
However, in typical Lord Bendtner fashion, he ruined his goal with a stupid celebration by stopping dead, standing tall and looking very smug. Why?
It's almost as if Bendtner wants football fans to hate him. In the space of three years, he's gone from an Arsenal player to a Nottingham Forest reject.
He's now at Rosenborg in the Norwegian first division - hardly something to be smug about.
What's worse is Bendtner has reportedly dropped his 'Lord' persona and opted for a new and even more ridiculous nickname: The Emperer.
