Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is on the verge of having his contract with VfL Wolfsburg terminated after just two seasons. 

 

The Denmark international, who is known more for his exploits off the pitch than the ones on them, signed for Wolfsburg from Arsenal in 2014. A decade with Arsenal failed to bring out the best in Bendtner and his time at Wolfsburg was similarly underwhelming.

The German club recently stated that they were looking to part ways with the 28-year-old after the completion of just two years of his three-year contract.

“We have attempted to hold talks with his advisers and have discussed a solution. I think that there will be a decision soon,” said Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs, according to German publication Bild.

“We have decided that he does not have to come in for now. The fact that he has been training on his own recently was not something we wanted to carry on.”

Bendtner’s lack of discipline has been a constant source of consternation for his current employers, with the Dane even receiving several fines due to his behaviour.

The ‘Lord’ could soon be a free agent

Nicklas Bendtner picked up the title of ‘Lord’ for his narcissistic comments about himself to the media during his time at Arsenal. During one interview, he even referred to himself as the best striker in the world. The Gunners management didn’t seem to agree and after one decade, 171 games and 47 goals for Arsenal, they refused to extend his contract.

Bendtner then found himself in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg. Instead of seizing the opportunity to dominate in a new league, he has a grand tally of nine goals in two seasons. ‘Lord’ Bendtner could be on the move again this summer as a free agent, but it is unlikely that the top European clubs will be interested in his signature.
