Football – Nicklas Bendtner: Former Arsenal Player Retracts Appeal Against Jail Sentence
Ex-Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has dropped his appeal against a 50-day imprison term for ambushing a cab driver.
Bendtner will serve the sentence at his home in Denmark, under escalated reconnaissance with an electronic tag.
The 30-year-old, who plays for Rosenborg in Norway, concurred with the lawyer general in Copenhagen to drop his appeal, said legal advisor Anders Nemeth.
When he will serve the sentence has not yet been chosen.
Rosenborg’s group season completes on 24 November and they play in the Norwegian Cup last on 2 December. They have Europa League diversions against Celtic on 29 November and RB Leipzig on 13 December.
The Denmark worldwide conceded hitting the cabbie yet said it was on the grounds that he felt compromised.
