Berlin (AFP) - Danish bad-boy Nicklas Bendtner has fallen offside at VW-subsidized Wolfsburg, and should cop a satisfactory, after breaking membership guidelines via posting an image of him mountain climbing right into a luxury Mercedes.
The photo, posted on social media web page Instagram, shows Bendtner mountaineering into the automobile with the text: "On my solution to yet another session".
but with Volkswagen being the Bundesliga club's main backer, Wolfsburg bosses have taken a dim view of the Danish forward's determination to make use of an image that includes a rival brand's motor vehicle.
"we've our rules, a type of being that you just should pay attention to how you are photographed in public," talked about Wolfsburg's director of recreation Klaus Allofs.
"The guidelines are not new.
"or not it's misconduct and it's careless, which at the end of the day will charge (Bendtner) money."
The 28-12 months-old ex-Arsenal forward has completely fallen out of favour with Wolfsburg's head train Dieter Hecking and performs second fiddle to Dutch striker Bas Dost and Germany's Max Kruse.
His two-yr contract expires in June and, with nine desires in 47 appearances for Wolfsburg, Bendtner is likely to be in the hunt for a new organisation on the end of the season.
The Danish bad-boy seems to have curbed the indiscipline (drink using and other alcohol-connected indiscretions) which blighted his nine years at Arsenal, plus personal loan spells at Birmingham, Juventus and Sunderland, before he joined Wolfsburg in 2014.
After a difficult first season, the 28-12 months-old scored a late equaliser, then netted in the penalty shoot-out, when Wolfsburg beat Bayern Munich within the German tremendous Cup final August, but quickly found himself back on the bench.
"I've noted all there's to assert," was Hecking's dismissive reply on Friday when asked about Bendtner, who grew to become down a proposal in J anuary to play in China.
Bendtner was left out of the match squad for Wolfsburg's three-2 win at Gent on Wednesday in the closing 16, first-leg of the Champions League, but is anticipated to be on the bench for Saturday's Bundesliga match at Hertha Berlin.
Wolfsburg have a mounting injury list with Dost (fractured foot), Diego Benaglio (rib injury), Daniel Caligiuri (bruised thigh), Andre Schuerrle (torn hamstring), Joshua Guilavogui (hip injury) and Sebastian Jung (torn knee ligament) all out.
