Nicklas Bendtner raves about Christian Eriksen after 'great season' for Tottenham

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has praised Christian Eriksen.

Wolfsburg striker Nicklas Bendtner has told this month's issue of Four Four Two that the development of Christian Eriksen at Tottenham has been 'really good to see'.

Bendtner, 27, is best known for his time with Arsenal, spending ten years with the Gunners before leaving on a free transfer to Wolfsburg last summer.

With 47 goals in 171 games for Arsenal, Bendtner was often derided and mocked, but on the international stage, the 6ft 4in hitman has a sensational record.

With 29 goals in 66 games for Denmark, Bendtner has been outstanding for his country - but still isn't considered to be their star player.

Instead, that particular tag goes to playmaker Eriksen, who already has 51 caps for Denmark despite being still only being 23.

The attacking midfielder has had a superb campaign in the Premier League, scoring ten goals and notching two assists for Tottenham as he demonstrates why he is touted as one of the finest playmakers in English football.

Bendtner plays with Eriksen on a regular basis for Denmark, and how now told Four Four Two that he has been impressed with the midfielder - despite the rivalry between Arsenal and Spurs.

"His development has been really good to see," said Bendtner. "He's scored some important goals this season and got plenty of assists - plus he has a lethal free-kick, which we've seen in the national team for a few years now. He's had a great season," he added.
