For those Arsenal fan(s?) hoping for a Nicklas Bendtner sighting in an Arsenal, don’t hold your breath as the Arsenal striker is back in Copenhagen trying to lose weight and get into shape.
Bendtner’s personal trainer Thomas Jorgensen says that Bendtner needs to lose weight but claims he could be back to match fitness by the end of the month.
“He needs more fitness and has had a few problems, but it is not as if he needs to lose 20 kilogrammes.”
This is not the first time that Bendtner has been overweight at the start of a season. Last year he was called out of shape by Juventus coaches after arriving in Turin for his season long loan carrying too much weight.
With Arsenal’s lack of depth up-front I cannot understand what Bendtner and his agent is thinking. IF he had been fit and looking sharp he might have got some playing time to cover for Giroud, but it seems like that will not happen as he is apparently weeks away from being fit.
