Bendtner hopes the worst is over with

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is hoping to soon be back to his best after overcoming his personal injury 'hell'. The Gunners striker was recently sidelined for three months after undergoing surgery on a niggling groin problem.

He made his second appearance since completing his rehabilitation as a substitute in Sunday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.

"When people have been out with long-term injuries they say it was hell. I can understand that now," said the 22 year old.

"It is difficult to motivate yourself because you come in to training each day doing the same things.

"But you stay motivated by telling yourself that one day soon you will be better.

"When you come back, you know you are going to be strong."

Bendtner added: "I am almost back to 100 per cent now and I am going to get better and better all the time.

"You always want to give your best and that is what I will try to do."
