Arsenal flop could return to Emirates Stadium after 'very serious' offence

Juventus could reportedly send Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner back to the Emirates Stadium following his ban for drink driving, which resulted in a six-month suspension by the Danish Football Association.

Bendtner, who joined Juventus on loan in the summer transfer window, was stopped by police in Copenhagen last weekend after being caught driving against traffic while three times over the legal limit.

"I take full responsibility for what I did. I know that it is very serious," Bendtner said after his hearing on Tuesday.

"I am aware of that. Now it’s time for me to move on.

"No one can understand the pain I am going through right now. I can assure you that this is the worst day of my life.

"I will do everything possible to get back to doing what I love. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives."

The 25-year-old was banned from driving for three years and received a fine of £97,000, while Juventus could take action of their own following the sentence handed out by the Denmark FA, reports The Mirror.

Bendtner has failed to make an impact since his temporary move to Turin from Arsenal, and Juventus may not cut loose the Gunners striker after his embarrassing public misdemeanour.

The Denmark international has made just nine appearances for the Italian champions, six of which have come as a substitute, while he has been out of action since December after sustaining an injury in the Coppa Italia.

Bendtner has failed to find the net during his time in Italy, and an early return to Arsenal could now be on the cards, although he is likely to find himself surplus to requirements should he go back to the Emirates Stadium.

Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott will all be above Bendtner in Arsene Wenger's selection order, and the Gunners flop will have to look for a permanent transfer away from the club in the summer.
