Arsenal boss rules out Bendtner exit

The 22-year-old has hinted that he may leave the Gunners due to a lack of regular football.

Bendtner was not part of the squad that managed to beat Everton on Sunday.

“He was not in the squad today because he had a little groin problem and I left him at home,” said Wenger.

And the manager insisted he still had a future at the club when asked.

“Yes, for the length of his contract – that is three more years,” he added.

“I want him to stay. I have known him since he was 16-years-old and I have a strong rapport with him.

“I like him as a player and a person, even if I do not agree with every statement. Overall I want him to stay and be part of the group.”
