Nicklas Bendtner faces having £234k Porsche seized after ex-Arsenal striker charged with seven driving offences

FORMER ARSENAL star Nicklas Bendtner is facing having his £234,000 Porsche seized after being charged with seven driving offences.

The Denmark international striker has been ordered to appear before Copenhagen district court on April 27.

He faces five counts of driving without a valid licence and a further two speeding charges.

Bendtner, 33, allegedly committed the offences between June 2020 and this February.

Prosecutors have called for the footballer's Porsche Taycan Turbo S to be seized and for him to receive a hefty fine.

The supercar has a 162mph top speed, and Danish media claim it is worth two million kroner – £234k.

Bendtner's lawyer Anja Velbaek Mouridsen said he would plead guilty to the speeding charges.

However she maintained the striker holds a UK driving licence, which entitles him to drive in Denmark.

Mouridsen said: “He should be acquitted. We will appeal to the High Court if the district court comes to a different decision.”

It will not be the first time that the ex-Gunners, Sunderland, Juventus and Nottingham Forest ace has appeared in court in his hometown.


He landed a 50-day jail term in 2018 for assaulting a taxi driver, although was allowed to serve the time on licence with an electronic tag.

Bendtner also copped a three-year motoring ban and fine for drink-driving eight years ago.

He has been a free agent since leaving FC Copenhagen in late 2019.

Bendtner spent nine years with Arsenal, scoring 45 goals in 171 games.
