Bendtner craves striker role

Published Add your comment

Arsenal's Nicklas Bendtner has pleaded with Arsene Wenger to restore him to his favoured position up front.

Bendtner has been used in a wide role this season, with Dutchman Robin van Persie taking the central role in a front three, but the Denmark forward craves a return to his favoured striking spot.

"I am an attacker not a winger. I have always seen myself as a striker and it is my goal to play as a striker all the time," he said.

"It is important for me to play and when Arsene tells me to play in a position, I'll do that.

"Last season I played a lot from the left side and this season from the right side but, like I said, I prefer to play up front."
