- Nicklas Bendtner reveals how he insulted Arsene Wenger after a failed transfer back at Arsenal
- The Danish striker claimed he apologized for his actions but it had a bad effect on his Arsenal career
- Bendtner played for a host of top European clubs including Juventus, Wolfsburg and the likes
Nicklas Bendtner said he called legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger inappropriate names over a phone conversation.
The Danish striker in his new book, Book Sides, revealed Wenger prevented him from joining Crystal Palace in 2013 at the 11th hour.
Bendtner went out of favour under the French manager and struggled for game time and a move to another London side was on the cards which would allow him easy access to his son.

But there was a twist in the story when Palace chairman Steve Parish, manager Ian Holloway and his agent Tom Brookes, Bendtner was informed Arsenal would not be letting him leave.
"I said a lot of ugly, disrespectful things. Like ‘a**hole’ and ‘w***er."
Bendtner claims he later apologized to Wenger but believes the incident hurt his remaining spell with Arsenal.
He went on to have three loan spells with Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus before joining Wolfsburg on a permanent deal.
Bendtner returned to England to play for Nottingham Forest for one season but moved to his native country to sign for Rosenborg but he currently plays for Copenhegan.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Jose Mourinho has been reportedly having backdoor meetings with Arsenal in the past few weeks but the north London club has now come out to deny this.
It was recently reported that Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi and Mourinho were seen together having dinner together which fueled speculation.
