Bendtner delighted with Juve training

Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner says the training he has undertaken at Juventus has been the most effective of his career.

• Bulgaria 1-1 Denmark

Bendtner, on a season-long loan to Juve from Arsenal, has made only one appearance in Serie A so far but he has suggested he is content with the current situation.

"I think Juventus are aware of what I can do," he said in Ekstra Bladet. "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."

Bendtner, who scored for Denmark in their 1-1 draw with Bulgaria on Friday night, maintains he can "easily" play a further 90 minutes for the national side when they head to Italy for Tuesday night's World Cup 2014 qualifier.

"At Juventus, the training has been different to - and much harder than - anything I've done before," he said. "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."

He is relishing the chance to play Italy at the San Siro. "Of course, it will be enjoyable to play against Italy, who have eight Juventus players in their squad," he said. "They know me and I know them, so I don't know if anyone has an advantage.

"For me, it's a battle that Denmark must win rather than a battle that Nicklas must win. I think we need to win as a team - it's not something I have to win as an individual."

Juve defender Emanuele Giaccherini says the Azzurri will have to be on their guard to keep Bendtner at bay.

"He is an important player who in the past has done well with Arsenal," he said. "He is one to worry about on Tuesday, much like the entire Danish team. Bendtner can also become important for Juve, as he has different characteristics to the other four strikers we have. He's very good in the air."
