Bendtner – The defining moment in my career


Back in September 2009, Nicklas Bendtner was involved in an accident that would change his life forever.

Driving to London Colney for training, the then 21-year-old lost control of his car on the A1 and span off into a nearby field, luckily escaping with just a number of minimal injuries.

“It was definitely the most defining moment in my career when I crashed my car,” Bendtner told our ‘In Lockdown’ podcast.

“There’s been ups and downs throughout my whole career and every time I had a down on the pitch, I looked to get an up, but I might have looked in the wrong places.

“But it was definitely a career-defining moment for me, crashing my car, and it left me out for a while and I had different surgeries after that. It still affects me to this day.”
