Former Arsenal man Bendtner reveals his Bundesliga frustrations

Nicklas Bendtner has admitted he is far from happy at Wolfsburg, having been forced to play second fiddle to Bas Dost in the Bundesliga this term.

A divisive figure throughout his time at the Emirates, Nicklas Bendtner appears to be far from settled at current club Wolfsburg, according to fresh reports.

Speaking to Danish website, the 27-year-old outlined his current frustrations with life at the Bundesliga club.

“I would have liked the game a lot more, because I have been training really well .... So I am happy with my situation? No, not at all,” he said.

To date, the striker has made just three Bundesliga starts for the club, with the Scandinavian forward more often used as an impact substitute.

Bendtner did appear somewhat determined to prove his worth to Wolves manager Dieter Hecking, however, noting that there was “nothing else than what I do on the field that can affect his opinion.”

The Dane has found his route into the first team blocked by Dutch striker Bas Dost in recent months.

From late January through to the start of March, the 25-year-old netted a sensational 14 goals to help Wolfsburg climb to second in the Bundesliga and advance to the quarter finals of the Europa League.

However Bost’s goals have dried up of late, allowing Bendtner to make more of an impact than in previous weeks.

The former Arsenal striker was among the goals last time out in Europe, netting a late winner for the Wolves in a 2-1 victory over Inter Milan at the San Siro that sealed a 5-2 aggregate victory.

Called up for Denmark’s friendlies with the USA and France this month, the striker could use the international break to put himself in the shop window for a potential summer move away from Germany.

But with Bost enduring a drought, the ex-Gunner could yet play a pivotal role for Wolfsburg this season.
