In Arsene Wenger’s post match interview on Saturday, where he seemed strangely calm bearing in mind it was an absolute shocker of a game, he was quick to announce that Gervinho was leaving, which we were already aware about but also the fact that Bendtner is currently no closer to joining another side, posing the question if he will remain with Arsenal next season.
I believe it is Bendtner’s ignorance to what he is actually worth that is preventing any move from happening. We have heard that numerous clubs have lined Bendtner up and Arsenal for starters have accepted at least 10 offers for the Denmark International, 6 of which were all made in early July, however Bendtner rejected every single one of them.
It’s now got to the stage where Hull City has offered to take him. I mean with all respect to Hull, they managed to get in the Premier League but you can’t expect them to stay here and so they are nothing more than a Championship club, and Bendtner only thinks he is good enough for the Champions League elite. Surely these offers from arguably lower clubs suggest to him that he isn’t as good as he thinks and that ultimately his ego has just grown far too much.
I cannot remember the team exactly (because there has been so many) but he openly stated that the club wasn’t in the champion’s league and that he would basically be making a step down in his career. That club was keen on Bendtner and he finally had the chance to leave Arsenal permanently to a place that could offer regular playing time and challenging for a champions league position, and he mucked it up by slating them before he even joined.
Bendtner for me is one of the most frustrating players ever at Arsenal and he doesn’t even get on the pitch so that must tell you something about his character. Money, greed and his ego have all taken him to a stage where he wouldn’t be happy unless the winners of a big league came in for him. He thinks he is too good for Arsenal but in all honesty I can’t help but expect to see him as an Arsenal player come 1st Sept. He probably won’t play but no doubt he’ll just rot in the reserves whilst he concentrates on his jewellery business for the next year. If we are paying his wages, would it not be worth trying to get some work out of him?
