Bendtner: I will not play for the Arsenal reserves

The youngster has impressed and scored four times, while on loan to Birmingham.

Bendtner told Ritzau: “It’s Arsenal who decide. But I know that they will not call me back unless they have at least got a place for me in the A squad.

“I will not go back to play for the reserves.

“The least that I should get is a place on the bench.”
