Nicklas Bendtner has taken a swipe at Arsenal by claiming the training programme at Juventus is the best he has been involved in.
Bendtner joined the Italians on loan for the season just before the summer transfer window closed.
The Denmark striker had arrived at Arsenal in 2004 but failed to establish himself in the team and had loan spells at Birmingham and Sunderland before moving to Serie A.
‘At Juventus, the training has been different to – and much harder than – anything I’ve done before,’ he said in Ekstra Bladet. ‘Because of that, my form is at a peak. I’m much sharper.
‘Without playing, I’m down to fighting weight and that’s never happened before.’
Bendtner, 24, has made just one league appearance for Juve but added: ‘I think Juventus are aware of what I can do.
‘When you come to a new club, you have to learn about things. In seven games, they have won six and drawn one, so it’s fine.’
