Bendtner on the road to recovery

Arsenal’s Nicklas Bendtner has revealed that he’ll wait for his groin injury to “completely clear up” before making a return to action for the Gunners.

The striker had surgery to rectify the problem in November last year, but said the pain had returned during Denmark’s World Cup campaign in South Africa.

Bendtner, 22, said that he is on the road to recovery and pin-pointed mid-October as a potential return date.

“I feel good because it feels better every day. I feel less and less pain to my groin. I can do much more than before as it’s [groin] gradually getting stronger and stronger,” Bendtner told Ekstra Bladet.

“I’m getting treatment and doing core exercises out here [London Colney] every day and I’ve had over one and a half week without noticing any big problems,” he said.

“I hope I get my fitness up during September and then I can start to train with the team.

“From then, I could return in two weeks. It all depends on how the injury feels.”

This news came shortly before Bendtner sacked his “self-publicist” personal physio yesterday evening. Denmark manager Martin Olsen has also been speaking this week on his hopes of the forward featuring in the Dane’s Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

    The car accident he had has really affected him physically. Ever since that accident hes seems to be getting these mysterious injuries.

    I think hes been playing unfit for Arsenal and Denmark.

    One because Arsenal neeeded a striker for the title race cause van persie was injured and eduardo was off form he scored goals though and nearly got us to a title winning premiership team

    And 2 the world cup he was definitely unfit he looked injured, slow, one paced. But who would reject the chance to play in the world cup at 21?

    I think he needs to be more selfish and look after himself more than the team. Or hes never going to recover from this injury

    Arsene must put his foot down when it comes to recovering players playing internationals of any sort. If they are not fully fit, they do not play. Bendtner should never have been picked for the World Cup as he was still injured and only made the injury worse. If he hadn’t gone, he’d be fit now for both Arsenal and Denmark.

    wenger is being paid 6 mil a year by the club and he still buys cheap players and cannot meet other players wage demands. I mean if arsenal can make Wenger the 2nd most paid manager then why can’t they buy a proven player.
