Bendtner wants Juventus chance

Nicklas Bendtner has asked Juventus boss Antonio Conte to give him an opportunity in the starting XI.

The Danish international joined the Italian giants in the summer on loan from Arsenal, but he’s only made two substitute appearances since.

“I’m quite a good player, I have the quality to be a part of this great club,” he told TV 2 in his homeland. “I don’t see why I shouldn’t play and I hope to soon be a first team starter.

“I can play in this team and I’ve shown that. I’m not at 100 per cent, but I’m convinced that I can do well.

“I want to play more games, but I have faith – I know that will happen with ease.”

Bendtner made a 13-minute appearance against Chievo earlier this season, while he came off the bench in the 1-1 draw with Nordsjaelland on Tuesday.
