Bendtner: It Just Keeps Getting Worse

BBC Sport reports that Nicklas Bendtner finished his disastrous loan spell at Juventus by breaking his wrist shortly after coming on as a late-game sub in the club's loss to Sampdoria.

Here are the cold, hard facts of life on the Bendtner Juve transfer:

  • No goals in 11 matches
  • Injured in December
  • The Juventus official team store, according to reports that came out in March, didn't sell a single Bendtner jersey
  • Back home in Denmark this past March, he was arrested for a DUI (for driving the wrong way down a one-way street, no less), leading to a three-year driving ban, a sizable fine, and a six month's ban from the Danish national team during the high season of World Cup Qualifying
  • It's safe to say that Juve doesn't want him back for another season -- apparently wanting to court more reliable and stable strikers, like Suarez. Earlier this year, there was rumors of a Bendtner exile to Anzhi or Zenit, but the latest development doesn't bode well for Project Jettison the Albatross.
