Danish international Nicklas Bendtner has said he knew he was going to leave the club the second he wasn’t named in the starting XI for the Carling Cup Final.

Speaking to the Telegraph the striker explained his disappointment at the manager’s decision on that day and he knew his time at Arsenal had come to an end.

‘I can point to a precise moment I knew I had to leave. It was when I looked at the team sheet before the Carling Cup final and saw that I was not going to start.’

Bendtner says he was ‘sad, stunned and disappointed beyond measure’ and that it was his worst moment in football.

He’ll obviously be able to tell us in 6 months time the precise moment he decided to start hoping that Steve Bruce would turn his loan spell into a permanent deal then.
