JUST PANTS: Nicklas Bendtner bags a brace against Portugal (picture: Getty)

Nicklas Bendtner’s judgement has always been on the suspect side of terrible. For instance, despite nine years of evidence to the contrary he believes he has the ability to be one of the best strikers in the world.

Within five years, I want to be among the best strikers in the world. Trust me, it will happen. I look around at other players, I see my own ability and I can’t see anything that tells me it won’t happen, I’m sure people will think ‘What is he talking about?’ But as I have done before, and as I will do again, I will sit at the other end and laugh at those people when it is all done. – Nicklas Bendtner, 2009

In fairness he does still have a year. Then there was the time he was fined $€100,000 for wearing a pair of Paddy Power lucky pants and flashed them live on tv following his goals for Denmark against Portugal during 2012. Ehem.

His latest lack of judgement has resulted in the Arsenal striker, who is currently on loan at Juventus, being arrested for drink driving in Copenhagen. Where he was apparently driving the wrong way down a main road. He added fuel to the fire of idiocy by ill-advisedly taking to Twitter and describing his offence as a “mild case of drink driving”. I’m presuming he was still drunk when he Tweeted the below.

Presumably after a scathing call from his agent/mum/manager/anyone with some common sense, Bentdner Tweeted a more sober and apologetic message.
