“You are not fit to be the great Bendtner’s physio! Get out of my sight!”
ARSENAL forward Nicklas Bendtner has ditched physiotherapist Soren Malling after labelling him a “self-publicist”.
Bendtner is still out of action with a groin injury which has troubled him since the latter part of last season and he spent some time with compatriot Malling as part of his rehabilitation.
But when Malling claimed Bendtner’s lay-off would be longer than expected, the forward questioned the therapist’s motives.
“I do not wish to receive any further treatment from this self-publicist,” Bendtner said in the Telegraph.
“I am very happy with how my rehabilitation has been going under the Arsenal medical team and expect to be back in training in around six weeks’ time.”
Curious – did Malling tell Bendy to smear horse placenta on his groin?
Can’t wait until Nicklas is back in action, complete with “I’m the best striker in the world” proclamations. We miss him.
