Bendtner dipetk ketika mengulas mengenai status kecergasan dirinya berkata:
I’m pretty excited and I can not say anything other than that it goes really, really good because I’m going to the club and will now train on a level playing field with the others for the first time.
Now I’m ready and it is a great day for me today. Some of the boys have off because of internationals, but otherwise I will train together with the other first team players at Arsenal and I’ve enjoyed myself so much to this day.
Bendtner juga menambah dia tidak lagi merasa sakit di pangkal pahanya dalam sesi latihan pertama kalinya selepas lama beristirehat panjang:
I have no pain in the groin and has trained so hard physical training, maybe I’m in my best shape ever. Now, just built it last football on, and then I am combative – first with a couple of reserve team matches to be quite sharp, football terms, and so is my hope that I can be with the first team in 14 days.
