NICKLAS BENDTNER has sparked amazement in Denmark – by declaring his aim to go into management.

The former Arsenal star, who spent nine years with the Gunners, has seen his career unravel in spectacular style.

Bendtner is planning an audacious move into management when he hangs up his boots

He received a jail term for assaulting a taxi driver in 2018, and has figured in a string of madcap antics.

Bendtner has fathered a son with a baroness, adopted the “Lord” nickname and launched a clothing range.

He has posted wacky pictures of himself and current girlfriend Philine Roepstorff on social media, and the couple currently have their own reality show on Danish TV.

Copenhagen daily Ekstra Bladet dubbed Bendtner “Danish football’s biggest bad boy.”

The 32-year-old has now announced his ambition in the latest episode of Bendtner and Philine.

He said: “One of the things I want to do well is to be a manager.

“I really want to take the coaching courses, so I have what it takes.

“I think that at some point, before I am 40 or 45 years old, I will have taken charge of my first club.”

Bendtner has been a free agent since his short contract with hometown club FC Copenhagen expired last December.

Copenhagen boss Stale Solbakken said: “I have to be honest and say I never thought of Nicklas as a coach.

“But I have no doubt that he has a good football brain, and he has experience with clubs in various countries.

“It won’t be about his past discipline problems, but how he does in the job and how passionate he is about it.

“I managed him for some five months, and his behaviour was exemplary throughout.

“So at least there are signs that he has become an adult and a responsible person.”

Bendtner scored 45 goals in 171 Arsenal games before leaving in 2014.

He also played for Birmingham, Sunderland and Nottingham Forest as well as having spells with Juventus, Wolfsburg and Rosenborg.
