Arsenal striker Bendtner: I never said I'd be best in world

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner denies making his infamous 'best in the world' quote.

Bendtner, who made his first Premier League appearance of the season at West Bromwich Albion last weekend, is ready to buckle down and show why he was so highly thought of as a youngster.

"I basically said that I think that anybody who plays football in the world would love to be the best. I think that's a normal statement and that got [changed] to me saying that I was the best player in the world," he told Arsenal Player.

"I don't know where that came from. I still listen to it now and again and still see it. If people want to believe that, then that's that."
