It appears that Nicklas Bendtner time in German football could be coming to an end sooner than expected after Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs criticised the striker for not doing his work properly during the winter break.
The season is about to resume in German football and several clubs have been doing the preparations. Wolfsburg, though, have been left surprised with two of their important players – Bendtner and Julian Draxler – coming up with less than impressive levels of fitness. Both players have been accused of being too relaxed during the break. Bendtner has especially found himself in the firing line once again.
Allofs claims that the young winger can be excused this time considering his age. However, he feels that as one of the experienced members of the team, Bendtner should have known better. There are widespread claims that the Danish International could be returning back to England after a spell in German football. Bendtner is reportedly being targeted by the likes of Crystal Palace. Even though manager Alan Pardew may admit that Bendtner is a tough player to handle, the quality of the 28-year-old is undoubtedly immense. He can certainly help Crystal Palace achieve their goals this season.
Other team interested in Bendtner is Championship outfit Hull City. "The consequence is that he has to work a bit more than the others. But again, he is far from being lazy. He is a young player in a new environment. So you have to get new experiences. The subject is already done. No problems there.With Nicklas it’s a bit different. He is old enough and completed his tasks only slightly. So you have to speak about it. Sometimes the person understands you, sometimes rather not.Nicklas knew what to expect when you don't do your homework in the holidays. It is sad, because he is sending signals,” said Allofs.
