Nicklas Bendtner Provides Typical Response During Interview After Scoring for New Club Rosenborg

​Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has become a bit of a journeyman since leaving the Emirates three years ago.

The 29-year-old Dane joined Norwegian side Rosenborg for an undisclosed fee last month, having featured for Wolfsburg and Nottingham Forest after his Arsenal departure. And he has already scored twice in his first two matches for his new side.

After getting on the score-sheet in Rosenborg's 3-0 win over Sandefjord on Wednesday, Bendtner was asked by a journalist: " Is it nice being Nicklas Bendtner in Norway?"

To which he replied: "It's nice being Nicklas Bendtner anywhere."

"It was great to get the goal," he continued, via Rosenborg's official website (H/T ​TV2).

"We again showed that we have the strength, even though we did not play the best match. We were good defensively and managed to close the fight out as we should. It was really fine. There were three good goals, so we are happy with that."

Bendtner only managed two goals during his time at Nottingham, and before that just three for Wolfsburg. But he seems to be in great form for his new side, and has left new teammate and Danish compatriot  Jacob Rasmussen impressed.

"He has a good nose for goal, you must say," Rasmussen declared. "Now he has played two games and scored two goals, so I hope it continues that way."
