Nicklas Bendtner has always been an enigma who has talked up his talent but always failed to fully deliver, especially at Arsenal.
He may have scored vital goals in the north London and Tyne Wear derbies, although he never managed to put his footprint on a club in the Premier League.
His latest drink driving escapade will have done his reputation no favours and you have to wonder if he has the temperament for England once more.
Arsene Wenger was hoping that sending the player on loan to Juventus would finally bring him to life, anxious to keep giving him chances.
The Arsenal front line is not flourishing at the moment and Bendtner has a golden chance to show his manager why he has put faith in him all along.
Is he good enough to step in when he re-emerges at the Emirates? Sadly not. He had a display for Sunderland against Man City at the Etihad where he bullied the defence all day and was sensational but did not do it consistently enough.
What lies in store for the Dane is yet to be seen, I suspect someone will take a punt on him in the Premier League, with Wenger finally expected to sell.
This player though promises a lot and delivers very little substance. He is a red herring for all buyers and to be avoided at all costs.
