Reports in Italy suggest Juventus are looking into the possibility of cancelling Nicklas Bendtner’s loan deal after the striker was found guilty of drink driving in his native Denmark.
The not so great Dane was banned from driving for 3 years and fined the equivalent of €113,000 after driving the wrong way up a one way Copenhagen street. His blood alcohol level was 1.75 with the legal limit being 0.5 He was also suspended by the Danish FA and will not be allowed represent his country for 6 months.
Now, Juventus boss Antonio Conte says he’s going to consider the situation and apparently the Turin giants will explore the option of rescinding the deal.
“I think it is always difficult to judge a situation that happened so far from here,” said Conte. ”If it had happened in Italy, then I would have done something about it.
“I sincerely believe that the club will take on the matter at hand and return with the appropriate decision.”
Bendtner has been out injured for most of the season, having suffered a serious abdominal/groin injury which required surgery.
There’s no excuse for drinking and driving, but when you earn as much money as footballers do and could afford to pay a Playboy model to chauffer you around town in a tank, there can be absolutely no sympathy for Bendtner.
