Bendtner Too Good For Juventus Bench Says Agent

Nicklas Bendtner’s agent Tom Brooks has hinted that the Danish striker is considering his future after struggling for playing time at Juventus.

Bendtner joined Juventus over the summer on a loan move from Arsenal with a view to make the move permanent but he has made only two appearances for the side so far.

His agent Brooks believes that the bench role does not do justice to a player of Bendtner’s ability and commitment, while also indicating that the player is open to a switch of clubs if the situation does not change.

Brooks told TuttoMercatoWeb:

“The boy is happy at Juventus, even if clearly he would like to play more. When he is on the field more regularly, he’ll be even happier.

“Why isn’t he playing? In all honesty, you’d have to ask Antonio Conte. Every player wants to play more and do his job. Nicklas has patience and respects the club, his teammates and the decisions of the coach.

“However, he is too strong a player to stay on the bench, so it’s not good for him or for Juventus to keep him there. If it continues like this, we will consider our options. Could that be from January? We’ll talk about it over the next few weeks.”

“He absolutely does not regret this decision, as he wanted to play in the Champions League and for a club of this level.

“It is true he turned down proposals from Siena and Fiorentina, but he couldn’t let this opportunity pass by.

“The important thing is that he starts to spend more time on the pitch so he can do his job. Everyone respects him and he never complains, but this situation is not good and, when he is out of patience, we will consider our options.”
