We love an excuse to laugh at Nicklas Bendtner in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Whether he’s changing his squad number to 52 and promising to pay for all the ‘disappointed’ fans who bought a shirt with his previous number (all 3 of them), or celebrating a goal in his Paddy Power underwear, the Dane is always good for a laugh.
The forward is man famously not short of confidence – he once scored off the scale in a ‘self perceived competence’ test at the club – so it seems people have a hard time convincing him his new look is ridiculous.
The hit-man seems to be desperate for a return to first team football, so has modelled himself on a Samurai to get himself noticed a bit more.
And it seems to be working, as he came off the bench during Arsenal’s massive Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund in midweek. And did nothing.
