Nicklas Bendtner Could Barely Score In First Copenhagen FC Training
Nicklas Bendtner joined hometown club FC Copenhagen on Tuesday, in a move he said was a 'special opportunity,' but his form isn't looking great in his first training session.
Copenhagen born Bendtner has been a figure of fun for much of his career, once saying 'If you ask me if I am one of the best strikers in the world, I'd say 'yes' because I believe it.'
The 31-year-olds career failed to get close to his potential but he now at least finds himself back at home playing for Copenhagen, until the end of the year, but things haven't started well for him with the video of his first training session going viral, there's a lot of misses from close range.
On joining Copenhagen the former Nottingham Forest striker said, "I know it is a very special opportunity and I will do everything in my power to seize it for the next four months,
"When I was 16 and left home, there was a lot I didn't know about... 15 years later, I can honestly say that it feels even bigger than I dreamed.
"I'm not tired of football at all. I am hungry and motivated like never before."

When he signed for Forest in 2016 the Dane did admit that he didn't regret having ambitions to be the best in the world but did regret suggesting he was, saying, "I actually don't regret saying I want to be the best striker in the world, because that's what everyone wants. It's just that no one wants to say it.
"It has haunted me. I was very young and I might have said it too early, before I'd proved I was in that category - or could get in that category."
The player known as Lord Bendtner only scored 45 goals in 171 appearances for Arsenal and until his two year spell at Rosenberg wasn't much more prolific in front of goal for the rest of his career.
Despite his lack of goals he has won silverware in Italy, Germany and Norway, including winning Serie A with Juventus.
