Nicklas Bendtner has announced his retirement from professional football.



The former Arsenal striker declared his retirement from the football world at the age of 33.


The Danish international Bendtner, who also played at Sunderland, Birmingham and Juventus, scored 30 times for his country in 81 games in an international career traversing 12 years.

The former gunners player finished his better part in football expressing confidence in his strength and for celebrating a Euro 2012 goal by lowering his shorts to reveal a pair of Paddy Power underpants, something he was later fined €80,000 for.


“I want to be top scorer in the Premier League, top scorer at the World Cup and, within five years, I want to be among the best strikers in the world,” Bendtner once said.


“Trust me, it will happen. I look around at other players, I see my ability and I can’t see anything that tells me it won’t happen, I’m sure people will think ‘What is he talking about?’ But as I have done before, and as I will do again, I will sit at the other end and laugh at those people when it is all done.”

However, Dane did not achieve any of these ambitions up to his retirement.
