Bendtner targets starting berth for Juventus

The Danish attacker has yet to make an impact at the Serie A giants, but he's determined to prove his worth and become a first-team regular.
Nicklas Bendtner is desperate to get regular playing time at Juventus, as he feels he has what it takes to succeed at the Serie A champions.

The Denmark international joined Juve from Arsenal on a one-year loan deal in the summer transfer window, but has so far mainly been warming the bench at the Bianconeri.

The 24-year-old came off the bench in Juventus' 1-1 UEFA Champions League draw against Nordsjaelland on Tuesday, and he is keen to get more game time in the upcoming weeks.

"I have confidence in my own qualities, and I know that I have what it takes to make it at this club. I don't see why I shouldn't be playing in this team, and I hope to become a starter shortly," Bendtner told TV2. "I want to play more games and I'm confident I'll get more playing time."

Juventus currently sits atop the Serie A standings after a 7-0-1 start and is preparing for an away match against Catania.
