Nicklas Bendtner is a player usually known for his self believe and confidence in own abilities. And it seems
Sunderland boss Steve Bruce wants to keep it that way.
On Monday, Bruce praised Bendtner for a solid Sunderland debut, stating that Bendtner offers the Sunderland team something different and that he should not be judged against a team as good as Chelsea, especially having played 90 minutes for Denmark in the same week.
Today, Bruce backs Bendtner once again on the official website of Sunderland AFC, safc.com:
“You can see that Nicklas gives us a new dimension. He is a very good player who I’m sure will have a big season for us. We saw flashes of that against
and for me he’ll only get better”. Chelsea
Sunday’s match against Stoke will indicate whether Bendtner can live up to expectations. A goal would surely relieve some of the pressure currently increasing.
