Nicklas Bendtner: Fined and Banned following drink-driving charge

Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner has been fined 842,000 Danish kroner (£97,000) and been disqualified from driving for three years after facing charges of drink-driving in Copenhagen.

The 25-year-old, who is currently on loan at Juventus from Arsenal, was stopped by police on Saturday night after he was spotted driving against the traffic in the city centre.

Bendtner appeared in court on Tuesday in the Danish capital, where he was handed a fine and a driving ban after pleading guilty.

"I can honestly say this is the worst day of my life," he told newspaper Ekstra Bladet afterwards.

"I can't describe how much pain I'm going through at this time."

Bendtner had confirmed his arrest on his official Twitter account on Sunday, saying: "Dear friends i was booked for a mild case of drinkdriving last night it was a quite nite but i am very very sorry to all my friends and fans.

"It is not ok to drink and drive. I take full responsibility."

His actions have also cost him a place in the Denmark squad for the foreseeable future, with the Danish FA (DBU) announcing yesterday he will not be considered for selection for the next six months.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
