Bendtner may quit Arsenal

Nicklas Bendtner

Striker Nicklas Bendtner admits he may have to consider a future away from Arsenal this summer after being frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities.

Bendtner is only just returning to full fitness and sharpness after injury problems this season. But the Danish international, who will face England in Copenhagen on Wednesday evening, clearly feels he has to play regular football to achieve his goals in the game.

"I have a lot of feelings for Arsenal and it means something great to me. I would be sad to leave it, but you have to think about yourself and, with the career goals I have, I cannot be sitting on the bench," Bendtner said.

"That's the way it is. I will do my best for Arsenal throughout the season.

"Hopefully, I will be there next season as well, but we have to wait and see.

"But, if my situation at Arsenal doesn't change, I will have to look at it because I want to play football.

"There is no doubt about that. If I cannot play at Arsenal, then I do not want to sit on the bench - but every player thinks like that.

"I am at a stage of my career now where I think I should play every game and I should develop and score goals."
