In case you missed it, Nicklas Bendtner was charged on Saturday night in Copenhagen for driving whilst intoxicated. What he was doing in Copenhagen and not Turin is anyone’s guess but late Monday the Danish football association announced that Bendtner has been suspended for six months by the Denmark national football team because of his arrest for DUI.
“While respecting the right to privacy, we have decided to suspend the player for the next six months,” a statement from the DBU read today.
Bendtner is on loan at Juventus, but is currently injured. He has yet to score a goal for Juve this season, and rumblings out of Turin suggest that Juve will cancel his loan deal, sending him back to Arsenal for the rest of the season.
