Nicklas Bendtner escapes serious car crash
Footballers continue to destroy nice motors
Furthering the widely held belief that footballers have a hard time translating their excellent foot/eye coordination into the successful operation of an automobile, Nicklas Bendtner wrapped his £160,000 Aston Martin around a tree on Sunday morning.
The striker’s car left the road as he drove to Arsenal’s training ground in London Colney, Hertfordshire, ploughing through a fence and a tree before coming to rest in a field. It sounds (and looks) pretty serious. But don’t worry Bendtner fan! The slipper-sporting Dane walked away with just bruising to the shoulder and grazed knees.
According to The Sun, a ‘motorist’ who ‘saw’ the accident said:
“The car wasn’t going especially fast but careered off the road. The driver must have lost his concentration for a moment. There was a massive amount of damage to the car but he got out, brushed himself down and seemed right as rain. He’s a lucky boy.
Arsene Wenger now has a selection dilemma, with Bendtner out of tonight’s Champions League clash with Olympiakos. And we’re sure he won’t have been happy seeing his striker hitting the woodwork again. *bu-dum-tssh.*
