Goal.com logo Goal.com 29-03-2017

Former Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner had the perfect start to his career in Norway, coming off the bench for Rosenborg to help them lift the Super Cup.

The 29-year-old moved to the Eliteserien club in March after an unsuccessful spell at Nottingham Forest. However, his time at Rosenborg has already seen him add more silverware to his collection.

'Can Fire win the World Cup, Schweini?'

Bendtner was introduced with less than half an hour to go against Brann and provided the assist for his side's second goal to help them record a 2-0 win. He was pleased with his performance and hopes to build on his showing as the Trondheim club look to defend their league title.

"It was good to get an assist at the end," the former Denmark international told NTB.

"We were a bit under pressure, but we did what we had to do and punished them. It was good to start the season with a win."

Bendtner spent nine years at Arsenal, playing over 100 Premier League clubs for the Gunners, and won the FA Cup in 2014. He also had spells on loan at Birmingham City, Sunderland and Juventus, where he won a Serie A title.
