PICTURE: Nicklas Bendtner goes Commando

Nicklas Bendtner 2

Fortunately not what you may think...

Never one for a quiet life off the pitch, Nicklas Bendtner posted this photo last night of himself geared up in full army clobber.

While putting his own unique twist on the look with a hoodie, the Dane looked comical as he joked around with four pals.

The Danish striker has stealthily engineered himself a spot in the Arsenal squad almost by default, but one where he has gone from an outcast to a hugely valuable figure.

He is back to full fitness after an ankle injury sustained against Cardiff City a month ago, featuring for six minutes off the bench last weekend in the win over Crystal Palace.

He has been affectionately dubbed Lord Bendtner by fans and teammates alike, but perhaps in light of the photo above, Lieutenant Bendtner or Sergeant Bendtner may catch on too.
