Arsenal boss Wenger: I'm no fan of Bendtner boots

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he's no fan of Nicklas Bendtner's pink boots.

After the Dane's winner against Bolton on Saturday, Wenger said: "I am not convinced by the boots. But if he wears them and puts the ball in the net I do not mind. He is 20 years old, 21 this month, so he is very young. People are sometimes surprised that I stick with him but he knows I have full confidence in him. I believe in He scored a very important goal - and not for the first time."

Team-mate Robin van Persie also paid tribute to his strike partner. "He hadn't scored for a couple of months and wasn't so happy about that, but he is a quality player and if you are a quality player you always score. His confidence is back."
