Dane wants Champions League football

Nicklas Bendtner has re-iterated he has no intention of going back to Arsenal at the end of the season. The Danish striker - currently on loan to Sunderland - fell out of favour with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger following a lack of goals, injuries and the arrival of Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh. However, the marksman believes that his time at the Black Cats and international starts will help put him in the shop window and attract a club playing UEFA Champions League football. "As I have said before, I will not return to Arsenal," said Bendtner. "I never really got the chance and then I was unfortunate with injuries. But now I will hopefully have a good season at Sunderland and with a fantastic European Championship ahead, it looks positive. "I want to play in the Champions League."
