Arsenal boss Wenger: Outspoken Bendtner just being honest

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he has no problem with Nicklas Bendtner.

Wenger claimed the striker was not fully fit for the derby after returning from a groin problem.

But he trained every day while Bendtner, 22, was given an unofficial seven-day suspension from first-team duties.

He may start the Champions League clash in Braga as Wenger wants to rest Marouane Chamakh while Robin van Persie has been left at home.

Wenger said: "Nicklas is sometimes a bit outspoken. He is a guy who is honest and genuine.

"I will wait in the morning to pick the team but Chamakh has played a lot of games."
