Bendtner Reveals Biggest Argument He Had With Former Manager Wenger

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner was quite a handful and someone who dealing with him required some patience and effort. He was a controversial person and football player and always made it to the news at the slightest chance he got. From engaging in fierce Clashes in training with his fellow players to having a go at referees during football matches, he did it all.

One of the things he did that hardly made it to the media has now been released by the former striker, as he revealed the biggest argument he had with his former manager at Arsenal Arsene Wenger.

He was speaking to FourFourTwo recently where he revealed that he tried to force a transfer away from the London club by throwing insults at his former manager.
In the interview, he said he called Wenger a wankster just to get him angry so he could be sold from Arsenal. The move however was not going to happen as he was allowed to remain at the club.
Bendtner came through the youth ranks at the Emirates Stadium where he spent ten years during which he also went out on loan on three different occasions. He also revealed that he was not always happy during his time at Arsenal and things went haywire back in 2013 when he was denied the opportunity to leave the club when he wanted to.
He said even though he and everyone at Arsenal respected themselves and they had very good meetings, he was in dire need of an exit from the club and revealed that at the time, Crystal Palace were hugely interested in him and made a fine offer - one which Arsenal rejected.
He said the deal could not go through because Arsenal were unable to find a replacement then and insisted that they were not going to let him leave until they did.
