Nicklas Bendtner has described himself as a ‘concierge’ for former Arsenal team-mate Mesut Ozil, and revealed the German ‘loved ladies’. 

When Ozil arrived in London he was keen to sample the nightlife and found an immediate ally in the Danish striker. 

In Bendtner’s new book ‘Both Sides’ reported in the Mirror, he wrote: ‘Without going into detail you can safely say that there is something about the talk that Ozil was a bachelor. During his first week in London we took the trip three times.

‘He does not act crazy or particularly demanding when he is out, but he knows how to fire it. And like so many others, he loves ladies. No doubt about it.’

‘On his second day at Arsenal, he visited me at training, saying “I hear you’re the go-to guy if you want to look around in the nightlife?” ‘It’s not entirely wrong,’ I replied.’

Ozil is now married to former Miss Turkey winner Amine Gulse. Bendtner went on to add that he was very much the ringleader for players going out during his time with the Gunners. 

‘There are so many who make use of my local knowledge. I almost become a kind of concierge for my teammates’, he added.

The striker was at Arsenal between 2005-2014 with a number of loan moves in between. He now plays for Copenhagen back in his homeland. 

Ozil is still at the Emirates but has found himself marginalised under Unai Emery. 

There has been a perception in some quarters of an arrogance in the playmaker but that was never Bendtner’s opinion.

‘Many people describe the guy as a bit arrogant,’ he continued. ‘But that’s not my experience. 

‘He is just quiet by nature and it can confuse people. That he holds both sides. I understood it. There are always two sides.’
