Bendtner: 'For Denmark and Juve'

Nicklas Bendtner prepares to face Italy with Denmark and will do everything possible “to ensure Juventus make the move from Arsenal permanent.”

The striker arrived on loan in the final days of the transfer session, but has barely featured for the Bianconeri, managing a grand total of 10 minutes.

He’ll therefore hope to make an impact when facing several of his teammates playing for Denmark in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier.

“I absolutely do not regret choosing Juventus,” he told local media. “It was a painless transfer, I am happy in a marvellous city like Turin and it was very easy for me to settle in with the squad.

“In fact, I hope that I can be confirmed at Juventus, though to ensure they make the move permanent from Arsenal I do have a play at least a bit...

“I am in good shape and feel ready to play, which I think was clear to see.”

Bendtner scored with a header in Denmark’s 1-1 draw with Bulgaria on Friday evening in World Cup qualifying Group B.

“I think Juventus know what I can do. Obviously it’d be wonderful to play and score in every match, but I know that Juve know me. When I get the chance, I’ll know what to do.

“It will be a battle that we absolutely must win, but it is not a personal battle of me against Italian football. We must win as a team.”
