Ex-Arsenal striker NicklasBendtner sparked Bendtner-mania in the Danish capital of Copenhagen when he signed for hometown club FC Copenhagen in 2019. The striker was treated like royalty when he signed for the capital club as he already had a cult hero status. NicklasBendtner was a genuine hero for the Danish people and this was highlighted with the way they received him on his return to the club football scene in Denmark.
On his arrival at FC Copenhagen, NicklasBendtner told reporters that he would do everything within his power to move the club forward as he said that it was a special opportunity for him to put pen to paper on a short-term deal at the club.

NicklasBendtner was 31 when he signed for FC Copenhagen having enjoyed the highs and lows of European football. He left Denmark for European football as a teenager and he didn't quite live up to expectations throughout his career in Europe. Bendtnerspent the majority of his career in English football and he also had a taste of Italian football and German football before his return to Denmark to sign for FC Copenhagen.

Bendtner won’t have predicted the huge impact that followed his decision to sign for FC Copenhagen. The Danish club sold out all their home jerseys with Bendtner at the back within 17 hours of his signing. He was given the number 32 shirt when he signed for FC Copenhagen.
The interest in the FC Copenhagen home jersey skyrocketed due to the influence of NicklasBendtner. At the time of his signing, FC Copenhagen director Martin Nohr confirmed that the home jerseys are no longer available. Nohr was the manager of the FC Copenhagen fan’s shop. He went on to say that they had not sold as much jerseys as they did when NicklasBendtner signed for the Danish club.
