Nicklas Bendtner Tries And Fails To Blag Free Pizza, Plays The ‘Do You Not Know Who I Am?’ Card

By Chris Wright

Nicklas Bendtner has been caught on camera in his native Denmark, (reportedly) drunkenly stumbling into a takeaway after a night out in Copenhagen in search of pizza, only to find himself sans cash.

So far you can empathise with young Nicky, right? We’ve all been suckered in by the neon gods of indeterminable meat and MSG after a night of liver abuse and found ourselves a little short of the old cutter.

That’s when it all began turning sour for Bendtner who, after seeing his credit card rejected and his subsequent request for free pizza knocked back, proceeded to tell the staff that he ‘could buy the whole restaurant’ if he wanted, before asking the immortal line used by complete wankers the world over, ‘DO YOU NOT KNOW WHO I AM?’, to which the guy on the counter presumably responded ‘yes, I know exactly who you are and that’s why you’re not getting any free pizza you arrogant little git’.

Indeed, Danish news outlet Ekstra Bladent have quotes from a 22-year old carpenter who was stood in the queue behind Bendtner as he ran his mouth:

“He was f***ing arrogant and came up as if he owned the place. Everyone just stood and looked at each other and shook their heads over the way he behaved.”

“He played really stupid. When he could not pay, he demanded to get free pizza and said: ‘Do you not know who I am? I can buy the whole pizzeria.”

A staff member at Gothersgade Pizza House also had his/her five penneth:

“We told him that it did not matter who he was. If he could not pay, there was no pizza!”

Ekstra Bladent also confirmed that, after asking everybody in the queue to pay for his pizza, two young girls finally took pity on Nicky and stumped up the 120 DKK (about £14) he owed for his food, before the Sunderland striker clambered into a taxi with his girlfriend and pootled off into the night.

All’s well that ends well, eh?

Ekstra Bladent have video of the whole debacle here, should you wish to watch a Premier League footballer making a knob of himself in Danish, and let’s face it, you do.

    Being a fan of the Boro it puts a smile on my face seeing this

  2. Mr Sensible says:

    Wait, so he was with his girlfriend the whole time who afterwards paid for a taxi but got 2 strangers to pay for the pizza?

  3. David Allison says:

    Toon fan here; ditto the above…

    Plus, more use of the word ‘pootled’ in future articles please, Chris…! ;o)

  4. Manolo Garnix says:

    So how did he pay his “girlfriend” then?

  5. T says:

    Isn’t his girlfriend some sort of danish royalty too ie waded

  6. chimpo says:

    rebekah waded?

  7. thisISben says:

    He can buy the whole place but not a pizza? Oooooookay

  8. WildScotsman6 says:

    horrific story…. 14 pounds for a pizza… just horrific.

  9. BallsDeep says:

    Bellend. How is he a pro footballer? Get to f**k

  10. MaxMad says:

    @T and Chris: His ex is a former Danish baroness, Caroline Fleming. (Once married to one Rory Fleming, who recently took over her former estate, when her dad bought it for Rory.)

    His new gf/flirt, is Danish actress Julie Zangenberg, which in my perspective, is well worth a WAG spot on WAATP.
    Get on it Chris! (or Alan)

  11. Tellitasitis says:

    Obviously his ex (former Danish baroness, Caroline Fleming) dumped him ‘coz he couldn’t pay for her pizza either. If I was in that line, I’d have thrown him a football & watched him make an even bigger twat of himself.

  12. Marty says:

    It’s sorta explainable cause he was drunk. But still that is extremely wank behavior

  13. enigma106 says:

    @Tellitastitis: hahahah! I just made your comment the quote of the day in my Arsenal blog in my post tagged “Wenger hints at possible January signings and Nicklas Bendtner embarrasses himself”

    feel free to check it out.

    Maybe arsenal can buy the pizzas and keep bentner, just send Chamaack to sunderland, while lazy and not nearly as good as he thinks he is, We would stand some chance of scoring with RVP out.

  15. bloody yank says:

    Oh and take arshavin and squilacci too (with the amount of times Ive seen the back of his shirt as he’s giving up a goal. you would think I could spell his last name)

  16. Tellitasitis says:

    @enigma106, as a fellow Arsenal fan, I’m honoured & flattered, Thanks mate.
