Rosicky calls for Bendtner to stay


Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has told team-mate Nicklas Bendtner to remain at the Premier League club.

The Denmark international is believed to be seeking a move away from the Emirates Stadium after finding his path into the first-team blocked by the early season form of summer signing Marouane Chamakh.

After joining from Bordeaux, Chamakh has enjoyed a lengthy run in Arsene Wenger's starting line up, much to the dismay of Bendtner

With Budesliga giants Bayern Munich thought to be interested in his services, Rosicky has insisted the powerful forward still has a bright future at the north London outfit.

"Of course I believe he has a future at the club. I don't quite understand the question because he has been injured for a while, but obviously he has to be patient as Chamakh's playing well at the moment," he said.

"It's difficult, because there's always competition for places at a club like Arsenal. We have three good strikers in Nicklas Bendtner, Robin van Persie and Chamakh.

"That's a good thing for the club, but obviously it is difficult for the players."
