Arsenal fans are probably grateful to be free from the circus that surrounds talented but extremely frustrating Danish enigma Nicklas Bendtner, but that doesn't mean they won't be very impressed with an amazing scissor kick the much-maligned striker produced in training earlier today.

Bendtner finally ended seven seasons of frustration with Arsenal in the summer, released under a cloud of controversy after a regrettable drunken altercation with a taxi driver during an unsanctioned jaunt home to Copenhagen.

Wolfsburg are the latest club to offer the 26-year-old a career lifeline and will hope he can reproduce a terrific acrobatic volley in training with his national team, which has been put in the public domain by Nordsjaelland's official YouTube channel this afternoon.

Denmark duty offers chance to find form

Bendtner is very much hoping to use this season as a chance to set the record straight for both club and country.

Even in Denmark, where the mercurial forward remains a hero, they lost patience last season after a very disappointing World Cup qualifying campaign.

The former Sunderland and Juventus loanee did score a brace against Italy in a rare bright spot of that frustrating effort, but Denmark need much more from their talisman to make Euro 2016.

Veteran coach Morten Olsen has stayed on to spearhead that charge and through a lack of options more than anything will once again turn to Bendtner as the focal point of his attack, with games against Albania and Portugal first up this week.

Wolfsburg form hardly inspiring

Fans of Bundesliga giants Wolfsburg probably wish Bendnter had the penalty area to himself more frequently, because his first two months in Germany have been underwhelming to say the least.

Bendtner has featured eight times for the Wolves in all competitions, including three starts, but is still waiting to break his duck.

The international break offers Bendtner the chance to find some form in familiar surroundings, but judging from an extravagant training ground effort confidence is still not a problem for the maverick despite a torrid 12 months.
