Nicklas Bendter is off to court again, this time facing the possibility of having his £176,000 Porsche seized, a prospect he is apparently resigned to.

The former Arsenal man, who is now 33, will appear at Copenhagen City Court on 27 April with Danish website Avisen.dk, stating he is facing five counts of driving without a valid licence and two counts of speeding, including doing 157-kmph on the Elsinore motorway which has a speed limit of 110-kmph.

Bendtner was driving with a valid UK driving licence which his lawyer will use in his defence. Prosecutors have called for his car to be seized.

Bendtner is listed as ‘retired’ on Transfermarkt but still plays, turning out for the Danish fourth-tier side, Tarnby FF, who are currently seventh in a league of nine teams. He is part of their “M+32 Old Boys” team.

He signed for Tarnby FF in the summer of 2020 following seven months without a club. Bendtner had signed for FC Copenhagen in September 2019 but made just nine appearances for them, scoring three goals and grabbing one assist.

To date, the man who wanted to become the world’s greatest ever striker, has scored 114 professional goals in 421 appearances.

He scored 47 for Arsenal, with 22 assists, his largest haul at any of his clubs (Rosenborg, Wolfsburg, Birmingham, Sunderland, Nottingham Forest, Juventus, FC Copenhagen).
