Bendtner admits Arsenal playing return "emotional"

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is delighted after his comeback in Capital One Cup win over West Bromwich Albion.

The Dane hadn't featured for Arsenal in two years.

After the game Bendtner posted a picture of himself on Instagram with Arsenal skipper Thomas Vermaelen and wrote a message to the fans.

He said: "Very emotional return, but what better way than with a win! Fans was absolutely incredible throughout the game and help us in difficult periods.

"For myself I was very moved by my reception and hearing my song again made my heart skip! Young players did ever so well and kept there cool in a difficult penalty shootout. Respect! Skipper looking fresh! (referring to Vermaelen)."
