Nicklas Bendtner: Has disappointed Denmark fitness coach Jens Bangsbo following

Bendtner, who is currently on loan from Arsenal, was arrested at the weekend and he has been subsequently banned from playing for his country for six months.

The 25-year old has found opportunities limited since moving to Italy but Bangsbo feels that he has not done himself any favours.

"Yes, I'm disappointed," he told DR Sport. "Because I saw this as an opportunity for him and because at times, when I have worked with him, he has been good at doing the things he was told. He was very focused.

"And this was one of the qualities which made me think I could recommend him to Juventus. He lived up to that for a long time, they were pleased with his attitude and development.

"It is not a big deal at either Juventus or in Italy. There have been a few stories in the Italian newspapers, but it is not something which generates headlines," he continued.

"I think they will handle this matter in a sober way. And I don't think you should expect Nicklas to play more during this period."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
