Arsenal Outcast Nicklas Bendtner To Be “Expert” Pundit at World Cup for Danish TV

Soon-to-be-released Gunners frontman to work with former Tottenham Hotspur director for Danish TV.

Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner will act as an “expert” commentator at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

The 26-year-old will become a free agent at the end of June when his drawn-out nine-year career with the Gunners comes to an end.

He has yet to agree a move to another club, but he has at least got himself a job for the summer, working for Danish TV station DR.

Bendtner, who has scored 24 goals in 108 Premier League appearances for Arsenal, will commentate on World Cup games from the quarter-finals onwards.

One of his colleagues at DR will be former Tottenham Hotspur director of football Frank Arnesen.

“I was excited when DR presented their idea and set-up of experts,” BT Denmark quotes Bendtner as saying. “I could only thank them and humbly accept while rejoicing.”

Bendtner has found the net 24 times in 57 senior international appearances for Denmark, making him his country’s eighth highest goalscorer of all time.

Denmark will not compete at Brazil 2014. In qualifying, the Scandinavian side finished second to Italy in a group that also included the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Armenia and Malta.

As they had the weakest record of the nine runners-up in Europe’s qualifying section, they narrowly missed out on a place in the playoffs.
