Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has once again hit the headlines for the wrong reasons after being arrested following an incident after the Gunners overcame Southampton on Saturday.

According to the Daily Star the Danish international was arrested by police and received a caution after attempting to smash down a door that led to a swimming pool

The 25 year old Danish international took to his instagram account to explain his actions.

He wrote: “On Saturday night after our win against Southampton I went out with my family and friends for dinner.

“After our dinner we all wanted a night swim in my gym so we changed to shorts and brought towels down.

“As we arrived at the gym my key fob changed the colour from red (locked) to green (open) but the door remained closed. We thought the door was stuck so we tried to open it and it caused some damage. I apologise for any inconvenience for my neighbours and I have paid in full.

“We had no part in damaging anything else in the building. The matter is closed with the police, and my focus is on tonight’s match.”

An Arsenal spokesman said: “As a club we do not comment on players’ private matters. However, we do expect the highest standards to be maintained on and off the pitch and will be reminding Nicklas of this.”
