Misfit may return to Gunners
The Danish striker has been shamed for the incident with the Italian club fining him £97,000, his driving licence being banned for three years, and his country suspending him from international duty for six months.
Having fallen out of favour under Arsene Wenger due to a combination of poor attitude and performances on the pitch, it is doubtful his return to Arsenal will be well received.
Bendtner expressed regret for his actions, and vowed to bounce back from the incident.
“I take full responsibility for what I did. I know that it is very serious.
“I am aware of that. Now it’s time for me to move on.
“No one can understand the pain I am going through right now. I can assure you that this is the worst day of my life.
“I will do everything possible to get back to doing what I love. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives.”
World’s best striker
Bendtner has often been made a figure of fun at the Emirates, with his claims of one day becoming one of the world’s best strikers being followed up with pitiful on-field displays.
The team’s sports psychologist Jacques Crevoisier claimed in 2011 that the striker had scored ten out of nine in a “self perceived competence” test.
The striker’s confidence has never been in question, but the number of fans who still believe in his ability to become a top class striker are steadily dwindling.
