Upson bigs up former team-mate Bendtner

Matthew Upson has been full of praise for his ex Birmingham team-mate Nicklas Bendtner, suggesting that he’s got plenty more time to improve in an Arsenal shirt.

The West Ham defender was speaking before last Saturday’s game and complimented the Dane on his recent goal-run.

“I know Nicklas relatively well, He’s progressed as a player over the last 18 months. I played with him at Birmingham for a short while when he went on loan there.

“You know what you are going to get from him. He’s a big physical presence who can bring the ball down well, and he’s also a threat in the air. He’s also got good feet as well, but he probably needs that little bit of consistency and clinical finishing in front of goal, but he’s still young and, given the opportunities, he’s shown he can take them.”
