Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner believes he can be 'one of the best players in the world'.
Bendtner has come in for criticism during his time at Emirates Stadium as he has been guilty of missing clear-cut goalscoring opportunities.
But the 21-year-old Dane took his goals tally for the season to 14 after he netted a brace in Saturday's 3-0 win at Portsmouth.
And the ambitious forward told Onside: "There will always be some people that doubt. There will always be shared opinions.
"I know that I can be one of the best in the world.
"I will only have to continue to believe, keep both feet on the ground and focus on getting better.
"I have no doubt that this will happen, so that's why I take it easy."
