Nicklas Bendtner has revealed that he will celebrate if he scores for Nottingham Forest against Arsenal.
The former Juventus forward will be pitted against his former club for the first time in a competitive fixture when the two sides meet on Tuesday evening in the League Cup.
Bendtner, 28, played under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal for eight years until 2014 but has now signed for Championship outfit Forest after taking advantage of his free agent status earlier this month.
“If I score against Arsenal I will celebrate,” Bendtner told the Telegraph. “But I promise I won’t be causing chaos.”
The striker has bagged 76 goals and provided 34 assists in 307 appearances throughout his club career and has got into trouble for over-the-top celebrations before.
Bendtner was heavily fined by UEFA at Euro 2012 for exposing sponsored underpants after scoring in Denmark’s second group match of the tournament against Portgual.
The forward spent time with Birmingham, Sunderland and Wolfsburg before joining Philippe Montanier’s side in the summer on a free transfer.
Bendtner has played just over an hour of football for his new team this season and is still awaiting his first goal for Forest.
The maverick centre-forward will face an Arsenal side in good form in the clash, the Gunners have taken maximum points from their last three domestic fixtures and picked up a crucial point against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week.
