Bendtner keen on starting role

Oct 25, 2012 4:24 PM GMT

Nicklas Bendtner is desperate for more playing time at Juventus and feels he has what it takes to succeed with the Serie A champions.

The Denmark international joined Juve from Arsenal on a one-year loan deal in the off-season transfer window, but has been largely warming the bench in Turin so far.

The 24-year-old came on in Juventus' 1-1 Champions League draw against Nordsjaelland on Tuesday, and he is keen to get more game time in the coming weeks.

"I have confidence in my own qualities and I know that I have what it takes to make it at this club. I don't see why I shouldn't be playing in this team and I hope to become a starter shortly," Bendtner told TV2.

"I want to play more games and I'm confident I'll get more playing time."

Juventus are preparing for their Serie A match at Catania on Sunday.
