The myths about Adebayor and Bendtner
By 1970’s Gooner
There is a lot of bullshit being published by the newspapers about the Adebayor vs Bendtner “affair”.
Myth number 1: Adebayor head butted Bendtner
Although photographs in the press show the Arsenal players involved in a mild confrontation, the footage of the actual alleged butt itself is difficult to discern.
The video shows captain Gallas stepped in to try to calm matters down before himself being confronted by the angry Bendtner. Juding by the video footage they will have a hard job deciding what happened as it is not clear at all.
Myth number 2: Bendtner had blood on his shirt and a gash on his nose
There is nothing on the TV footage and in any of the photos to indicate that Bendtner has indeed suffered a gash on his nose nor is there any blood on his shirt.
Myth number 3: Adebayor told Bendtner 'I'm only on because you are so s**t'
Yea I can actually confirm that this is indeed what Adebayor said to Bendtner. A Danish friend of mine close to Nicklas and his family actually confirmed to me that this is true!!!
BULLSHIT of course.
And if you believe this then you will believe anything. Where do you think this quote has originated form? In that well respected and trusted daily newspaper called the Sun! Where else? From a source!!
Read what the paper says:
A source said: “The first thing Adebayor said to Bendtner was ‘I’m only on because you are so s**t!’ "He has been on Bendtner’s case for a long time.
“The pair do not get on and it finally boiled over on Tuesday night when Adebayor came on as a sub with the team 4-0 down.
“Bendtner ignored him — but when Adebayor said the same thing again later on, Nicklas gave Manny the finger and it all kicked off.”
What should Arsenal do?
Nothing has been confirmed yet. Yes there has been an altercation but it may be no more than that. Arsenal should wait and see what the FA come up with. If they deem that there should be a punishment then accept it. But only then, not before.
In fact the latest news is that the FA will not take any action! They probably have seen through the myths!
The Sun should be asked to retract that story too.
