Nicklas Bendtner in esports

In a realityshow on the streaming service Discovery+, Bendtner has been an advocate for esports and gaming, stating:

“I do not doubt that within 10-20 years, esports will be one of the biggest sports in the world, if not the biggest. It would be stupid of me not to invest relatively early, where you can still be involved without having to invest really, really much money,” Bendtner states in an episode according to Danish CSGO media Dust2.

Bendter quit his footballing career in 2021 after runs in Arsenal, Birmingham, Sunderland, Juventus, Wolfsburg, Nottingham Forest, Rosenborg and FC Copenhagen.
