Nicklas Bendtner in the red over car photograph
Barlin: Danish bad-boy Nicklas Bendtner has fallen offside at VW-sponsored Wolfsburg, and will cop a fine, after breaking club rules by posting a picture of him climbing into a luxury Mercedes.
The picture, posted on social media site Instagram, shows Bendtner climbing into the vehicle with the text: "On my way to another session".
But with Volkswagen being the Bundesliga club's main backer, Wolfsburg bosses have taken a dim view of the Danish forward's decision to use a picture featuring a rival manufacturer's car. "We have our rules, one of those being that you must pay attention to how you are photographed in public," said Wolfsburg's director of sport Klaus Allofs.
