Nicklas Bendtner's Rough Match Against Coventry

BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIJanuary 24, 2014

Nicklas Bendtner made his return from a brief injury spell on Friday night against Coventry City in the FA Cup. 

For Arsenal, the match was a smashing success, as they saw off the visitors 4-0 and advanced to the round of 16. 

For the oft-embattled Dane, who is consistently at the wrong end of Arsenal jokes, he did little to endear himself to the Emirates. 

He made a nice turn in the first half, but completely whiffed his shot. 

In the second half, he couldn't shake the shanks, and it was more of the same. 



We salute the man who once called himself the greatest striker in the world

Brilliant (again) by Ozil...hopeless (again) by Bendtner. BUY A STRIKER, WENGER. #Afc
