Arsenal striker ready to 'push for more'

Published Add your comment

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner claims to be ready to push for a more regular role in Arsene Wenger's first-team, having recently been rescued from exile by his manager.

The Denmark international had spent the last two seasons away from the club on loan, with Sunderland and Juventus respectively, and it appeared he would depart in the summer transfer window.

Bendtner, however, was unable to secure a move away from the Emirates Stadium, and was introduced back into Arsenal's senior squad following their failure to reinforce their goalscoring ranks.

The 25-year-old's appearance against West Brom in the Capital One Cup last month was his first for Arsenal in more than two years, and he has since registered three more outings, all of which have been as a sub.

Bendtner, however, is likely be afforded another start in the cup when Arsenal face Chelsea on Tuesday evening at the Emirates Stadium, and the Dane claims to be ready for an increased workload in the coming weeks.

"I’ve always known the Club well, so there was no difficult adaptation period," he told the official Arsenal website.

"The main thing was to get back to fitness, and get playing. I’m there now, so then you push for more.

"When the team is playing well, you know you have to take your opportunities when they come along.”
