Nicklas Bendtner has said he will celebrate against Arsenal if he scores during Nottingham Forest’s Capital One Cup tie with the Dane’s ex-employers, tomorrow night.
The former Gunners striker moved to Forest after a lean spell at Wolfsburg was brought to an end, this Summer and Bendtner now has a chance to revitalise his career in England, at the City Ground.
However, despite his vow to celebrate if he scores against Arsene Wenger’s men, Bendtner insists he won’t “go crazy”. Speaking during a press conference, Bendtner said:
“I’m really looking forward to a great match in a sold-out stadium. I’m sure there’s going to be a great atmosphere. It’ll be a tough game against a strong Arsenal side but we are very confident.
“I will celebrate if I score tomorrow night but I won’t go crazy. I have a lot of love and respect for Arsenal as a club. We are underdogs tomorrow and we have to be at our best to stand a chance. But we are ready and we know anything can happen.”
Bendtner spent a decade with Arsenal, making 171 appearances during an often hilarious spell with the North London club.
