Zlatan Ibrahimovic might not have had a great career at Camp Nou, but, he has denied that he has any hard feelings for the Spanish club.
According to the Sweden international, he made a lot of friends during his time at Barcelona and he still gets along well with those guys.
There have been occasions in the past when Ibrahimovic has hinted that he did not like the way he was used at Barcelona, but, now, the striker seems to have moved on from it.
He was very kind while speaking about his former club the other night. In his words, “I have thousands of friends over here in this city and I share good bonding with the Barca players as well.”
Wolfsburg manager Dieter Hecking feels that striker Nicklas Bendtner will have extra motivation to perform well against Everton given that they are an English club.
The 26-year-old striker spent almost a decade in English football with the likes of Arsenal, Sunderland, and Birmingham City. However, the difficult period recently came to an end after the striker moved to Wolfsburg in the summer. He has been in relatively good form, but goals continue to evade him. He recently ended the goal drought by scoring two againstFC Krasnodar in the Europa league.
Nicklas Bendtner spent over 5 seasons performing at the Emirates Stadium but the Danish attacker could never really cement his spot in the starting lineup of Arsene Wenger. He did manage to get into the main team of Wenger during his 3 opening seasons with the Premier League club but after new players were being signed and with the performances of Bendtner just not being good enough, he started falling down in the pecking order of the squad and was even offloaded to a number of different clubs including: Juventus, Sunderland and Birmingham City with the objective that the Danish player could gain experience outside of Arsenal and hopefully make his return to the Emirates Stadium as a more experienced and knowledge player but he was eventually sold to the German side Wolfsburg.
Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner finally put an end to the speculation surrounding his future after signing for German club Wolfsburg. Bendtner has been a free agent for the last few months, but he has been unable to agree a deal with interested clubs. There have been rumours that the player was demanding excessive wages. This saw the likes of Werder Bremen drop their interest in the player. The entry of Wolfsburg, though, has finally brought an end to the search for a new club after the striker agreed a three-year contract.
Nicklas Bendtner recently brought his nine-year spell at Arsenal to an end after being released by the club following the end of his contract. It has been expected for the last few years that Bendtner would permanently move away from Arsenal after falling out with manager Arsene Wenger. However, he has been unable to find a new club due to several reasons. His poor form, the transfer fee demands of Arsenal, and inability to come to terms with interested parties have been some of those reasons. He is now close to moving to another club on a permanent contract.
Despite being released by the Gunners, Nicklas Bendtner might continue playing in the Premier League as according to some reports, Burnley, one of the three teams which have been promoted to tier 1, is keen to secure the services of the 26 year old striker.
Bendtner spent a total of 9 years at the Emirates stadium, but, he played only 100 odd games in that duration. He never quite became a regular in the Gunners starting XI. Even during the last season, he played only when the team management decided to rest Olivier Giroud, otherwise, he was mostly warming the bench.
So, it didn’t surprise people when Arsenal decided to get rid of the Danish player at the end of the last season. They had hardly any reason to give him a contract extension.
Nicklas Bendtner’s season with Arsenal has been limited to only a few numbers of appearances and after going through Sunderland and Juventus on loan deals but his return to the Premier League club has not made any significant difference towards Arsene Wenger choices of selecting other players in starting lineup.
The Danish attacker’s time at the Emirates Stadium has run up as he expressed his desire to leave Arsenal with the German league turning out to be a likely destination as he revealed details of his next football destination.
Danish club FC Copenhagen have rejected suggestions that they are about to complete the signing of Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, who is a free transfer in the summer. The striker is now free to negotiate terms with clubs from abroad. There have been speculation that he could seal a return to Danish football in the summer with the likes of Copenhagen interested in him. They are the biggest Danish club and the presence of Champions League football will also be a big draw for the striker. However, they have dismissed those rumours saying that they are untrue.
It has been a significant amount of time since Nicklas Bendtner has played an important role for Arsenal as he only made 1 appearance for the club during the 2011-12 season and later was loaned out to Juventus where things did not get a huge improvement as he was only featured in 9 league matches for the Italian club.
Now that he is back at the Emirates Stadium with Arsenal, he still has not managed to establish himself as a fundamentally vital player for the Premier League club and things have recently gotten even worse for the Danish player as he was involved with a drunken incident in Copenhagen.
AC Milan suffered a 2-0 defeat when they went head to head with Atletico Madrid during the 1st leg of the Champions League but that was not the only downside of the match as Mario Balotelli sustained a shoulder injury that will be leaving him out of action for around 10 days.
Mario Balotelli missed out of Ac.Milan’s Serie A match against Sampdoria but the team of Clarence Seedorf still managed to claim a crucial victory. The former Manchester City player is expected to be back in action for his club’s upcoming match against Juventus.
