‘If He Gets Fit, I Will Use Him’ – Arsene Wenger Announces Nicklas Bendtner May Stay At Arsenal After All

“You are…Higuain, correct?”

More great news for the Arsenal faithful this morning with Arsene Wenger telling reporters at his press conference that, despite having spent all summer trying to flog Nicklas Bendtner to absolutely anyone who would take him, the Danish striker has been re-added to the Gunners’ squad and will be used if he gets himself in shape.

Wenger said: “The chance for Nicklas to leave now is very small. If he comes back well and gets fit, I will use him.”

This of course coming roughly (i.e, exactly) 820 days after Bendtner reared up and declared that he had “decided 100% that I must leave Arsenal” in June of 2011.

In a stat lifted shamelessly from Arseblog, Bendtner is actually the second highest goalscorer at the club with 45 goals (only Theo Walcott has more with 63), but he hasn’t played a competitive match for Arsenal since March of 2011, leaving on season-long loans at the arse-end of the last two summer transfer windows to Sunderland and Juventus respectively.

Why, he’ll be like a new signing!

    If you really think about it, players like Bendtner have it MADE — he doesn’t have many footballing responsibilities but still collects a hefty paycheck week in, week out — absolutely zero accountability on AFC’s part. They let people rot in reserves on fat wages, this is nothing new!!! Albeit they have off-loaded a few players like that recently

    Fourth place here we come!

    I’m quite certain I remember a Bendtner interview on BBC’s Football Focus a few years ago when he came across as a right cocky little git.

    Saying shit like he’s going to be one of the best strikers of his generation.

    It’s not the actual video (more of a follow-up to it) but here you go:


    Hard to know what to feel about the guy, irritation or pity.

    Robert Pires next, what are the chances? Might as well resign every Arsenal player who is available on a free, eh Wenger?
