Arsenal boss Wenger has no doubts over Bendtner ability

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has no doubts about Nicklas Bendtner's ability.

The 22-year-old Denmark striker has just returned to fitness following a three-month lay-off after groin surgery, which was part of the reason the Arsenal manager did not venture into the January transfer market for another forward.

Wenger said: "I think we will see the best of him now as he is getting to the best age for a striker.

"Of course, he will still improve and learn a lot but, at 22, you have to start to play at the top level."

The Arsenal manager continued: "Nicklas is a boy who has a big potential.

"He arrived at the age of 15 and we work very hard with these players to get them to a level where they are today.

"Of course, we do not believe in a player for four or five years and then suddenly stop because people say you should buy a striker.

"We have a line of conduct and we keep believing in what we have done up until now and we hope they pay us back."
