Wolfsburg have confirmed that they have punished Nicklas Bendtner for posting a photo on Instagram of him getting into his Mercedes S-Class car outside a hotel.

It might seem a tad harsh on the surface, but the Bundesliga side are owned and bankrolled by Volkswagen. You see the issue.


The perennially out-of-sorts striker has now been fined by Wolfsburg for his misconduct, with the club’s sporting director Klaus Allofs duly confirming as much: “This is a misbehaviour and in the end it will cost money.”

Wolfsburg players and staff are contractually obliged to drive Volkswagen vehicles, a club mandate that they obviously take very seriously.

    Well, when you have so much money I can understand if you don’t want to drive a Passat or a Golf or a Jetta.

  2. Lewis Hamilton says:

    Benz & VW are HARDLY direct competitors. Now, Trabant, there was a threat!

  3. Jarren says:

    By “contractually obliged to drive Volkswagen vehicles”, can I assume that also includes vehicles in the VW family such as Audi, Bugatti, Lamborghini & Porsche?

    Not a bad selection to pick from, no-one can argue with that lot.
