Nicklas Bendtner Denies Retirement Rumours

The Arsenal and Denmark forward has rubbished reports that claim he was close to retiring due to injury.

Bendtner has yet to feature in the Arsenal team this season because of a long-standing groin problem and some speculation had suggested the Dane could be forced to hang up his boots.

“It’s crazy to hear such stories, I can completely dismiss it.” Bendtner told

“I have been worried during the injury spell, but there has never been mentioned that it could stop my career.

“I can’t understand where this rumour comes from. It’s nasty and quite shocking.”

Bendtner added: “I am looking forward now and there is a lot to look forward to.

“I am expecting to be fit for a comeback within a not too distant future, but I have not set a date.

“Arsenal and I have worked out a timetable which I am following, but we are keeping the details to ourselves.”
