Arteta: Bendtner deserves his Arsenal success

Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta is delighted for Nicklas Bendtner over his goalscoring performance over Cardiff City.

Arteta thinks Bendtner will have a big part to play when he returns from the ankle injury he suffered in scoring his goal.

"He is part of this team and he's worked hard," Arteta told the Matchday Show. "His attitude has been spot on since I've been here and he knows that he has to wait for his time, Olivier [Giroud] has been doing really well.

"The manager decided to play Lukas [Podolski] up front but when he [Bendtner] came on I think he looked really sharp and he looked dangerous.

"We need people like him to help the team when he's needed."
