Video: Ex-Arsenal Striker Nicklas Bendtner Makes Horrendous Error For Rosenborg

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner came up with a brilliant assist in the Europa League on Thursday night – but he did it for the wrong team.

After leaving North London, Bendtner – who is still only 29 – has enjoyed fairly underwhelming spells with Juventus, Wolfsburg and Nottingham Forest, before ending up with his current club Rosenborg, the champions of Norway.

He was leading the line for Rosenborg in the tricky trip to Roberto Mancini’s Zenit Saint Petersburg and, to give him his due, he did provide a brilliant through-ball – but there was just one slight problem:

In the end, Zenit went on to win the match 3-1, and firmly put one foot into the knockout stages of the competition.

Unlucky, Nicklas. Chin up, son.
