Wenger opens door for Bendtner first-team return
Juventus striker Nicklas Bendtner has apologized after being banned from international football for six months following a DUI offense.

The Denmark international, who is on loan at the Serie A club from Arsenal, has scored 22 goals in 55 games for his country but will miss a number of World Cup qualifiers after being caught driving on the wrong side of the road on Saturday evening.

"I am incredibly sorry for my actions. I can truly say, that this is the worst day of my life," Bendtner said while speaking in front of the Copenhagen District Court. "At the same time I take full responsibility for it, for what I have done, but I must go on. I cannot describe how much pain I am going through, but now I want to do all I can to come back strong."

Bendtner's spell with the Italian champions has been blighted by injury. The 25-year-old has yet to score since moving to Turin and has made just eight appearances in Serie A.
