Nicklas Bendtner has said he appreciates the likes of Clemence moaning at him during games as it keeps him going.

‘To be honest, normally I don’t want people on my back when I am down or upset, but I’ve found that here I really appreciate people being after me.

‘It’s good, it helps keep me going because I can get a bit frustrated and maybe switch off sometimes. For example, let’s say in the last 10 minutes of a game when I feel like I will have a break, Clem shouts at me.

‘He makes sure I carry on and then I know that I am running for the team, that I am doing my bit for the rest of the players and I mustn’t stop.

‘That gives me a boost. It’s nice now and then to have people on your back and I am sure everyone sees it that way.

‘In this team you always give 100 per cent no matter how tired you are. We are all willing to do that and fight for each other, which has helped us get good results.’
