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 Champions League draw against Nordsjaelland on Tuesday, and he's 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 are currently preparing for the Serie A match away against Catania.
