Conte feels sorry for Bendtner after injury

Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner, who is currently on loan with Italian champions Juventus was stretchered off in their match against Cagliari in the cup last night after just 43 minutes after he suffered what looked to be a serious knee injury.

Bendtner, who was making a rare start for the Italian side, is believed to have suffered damage to the muscles around his left knee however it is not clear how severe the damage is or how long it will keep him out for.

Speaking after the match, Juventus manager Antonio Conte said

I’m especially sorry for Bendtner. I would have liked to have seen him get a longer period on the pitch.

To date, Bendtner has only managed three starts and has yet to register a goal or assist during his limited time on the pitch.
