"Nicklas is not ready to start in the Premier League," said the manager. "But I want to give him as many games as I can to make him understand what is needed."
"He is intelligent, an open-minded boy. You can have a frank chat with him, tell him what is missing and he doesn't need to be told twice to do it. He is such a talent, just must play at a higher pace."
Bendtner does not believe his inexperience is a major factor. "We have a lot of players and it's up to the boss who plays," said the Dane. "I'm going to fight to try to get as much games as possible."
