Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner was found driving without a licence and had been fined £5,000 after being caught by the police in South Tyneside.
MIB (Motor Insurers’ Bureau) chief executive Ashton West reacted strongly accusing the 24-year-old for driving without insurance saying the striker who was on loan to Sunderland last season didn’t set a good example here.
The Danish international who was told Arsenal to find another employer was ordered to pay £85 costs and had six points added to his licence.
“So much has been done in recent years to reduce the level of uninsured driving and so it’s disappointing that someone like Nicklas Bendtner, who is in a high profile position, has not done what the law requires. The fact that he has been caught by the police sends a clear message to those who may be tempted.” – West was quoted while speaking to the reporters.
He further added “As the typical uninsured driver is male and aged between 17-29 years, Bendtner’s actions don’t set a good example to this group. A professional footballer should be a role model to these people.”
Manager Arsene Wenger recently made it public that Bendtner is among few others who will be removed from the squad before the next season.
