Bendtner threatens to quit

Bendtner has slipped behind Marouane Chamakh in the pecking order at the Emirates, and with Robin van Persie on the brink of a return to the side, his prospects of first team football look poor.

The Dane said “When I’m 100 per cent fit, I can’t accept sitting on the bench. I’m 100 per cent good enough for the starting XI in Arsenal. I have the qualities and I’ve been sitting enough on the bench in my career. If my manager feels differently that’s fair, and he’s the one choosing the team, but then I disagree.”
