In the first day he saw ten or twelve of Juventus stars were smoking in the toilets Bendtner reveals
Speaking to BBC Radio 5
talked about big Juventus stars like
“It was in the bathroom, I couldn't find the guys and it was a little bit weird. You know, it was my first day. Obviously I got quite quickly onto the coffee wagon as well.
“Then I found ten or twelve of them in the toilets, just having a coffee, talking, enjoying each other's company - and having a cig.
It was an amazing sight and made me feel like this was something I will enjoy.”
“What can you say to these guys? If you look at their careers and how professional they are, it was a real eye opener to me actually regarding these two.
“Because the professionalism they showed on the pitch and the camaraderie was on a different level, so no one thought anything of it.”
He also talked about Balotelli
“It's funny because you remember when Mario Balotelli came to England and everyone said about him smoking in the toilets,” continued Bentdner.
“And it became this massive story in the paper - a player smoking. In every single club I've played in, players have been smoking.
“It was much more of a thing in Italy, much more of a normality than in England.”
