O Jogo wrote on Tuesday that Bendtner has now completed his 50 days under arrest, during which the player insists he trained for six hours per day. He believes he’s now ready to return to play for Rosenborg BK, and posted footage of his recent training sessions on social media.

The Danish international was given his sentence after being convicted of the assault of a taxi driver in Copenhagen on the 9th September. He admitted to hitting the taxi driver, though claimed it was because he felt threatened after the driver threw a can at him.

After the conviction, Bendtner posted an apology message to Instagram:

It’s not the first time Bendtner has been in trouble in relation to some form of driving in Copenhagen. In 2013 he was fined £97,000 after drink-driving charges, and he was banned from driving for three years. That’s likely why he was taking a taxi on this occasion. Let’s hope it’s the last of such incidents.
