Nicklas Bendtner is on the Juventus bench again and his agent warns “if it continues like this, we will consider our options” in January.
The Danish international was hoping to face Nordsjaelland on tonight’s return to his homeland, but the striker has only played 10 minutes of football this season.
“The boy is happy at Juventus, even if clearly he would like to play more. When he is on the field more regularly, then he’ll be even happier,” agent Tom Brookes told TMW.
“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, 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, ok?”
Bendtner arrived on loan from Arsenal, choosing Juventus ahead of offers from Siena and Fiorentina.
“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.”
