Contrite Bendtner says sorry
07 May 2009 - 09:26:32
Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has moved quickly to express his sorrow after being pictured leaving a London nightclub just hours after his side's Champions League exit.
The Denmark international was seen in the early hours of Wednesday morning with his belt undone and jeans pulled down six hours after the Gunners had crashed out of the competition to Manchester United.
A contrite Bendtner said: "I may be young, but my actions were a poor error of judgment and something I deeply regret.
"I love this club and was so disappointed to lose against Manchester United.
"Reaching a Champions League Final is one of my biggest dreams and getting knocked out was a massive blow. However, no matter how disappointed I was, it does not excuse my behaviour later in the evening.
"I want to apologise to the club and the fans for letting them and myself down.
"I cannot change the past, but will learn from my mistakes. Tuesday is behind me now and I want to use my energy to fully focus on our three remaining games this season - starting with Chelsea on Sunday."
