Bendtner ditches Danish specialist

Bendtner is still sidelined by a groin injury which has troubled

him since last season but spent time with compatriot Malling as

part of his rehabilitation. When that treatment stopped, Malling

claimed Bendtner’s lay-off would be prolonged as a result,

prompting the striker to question the therapist’s motives. “I do

not wish to receive any further treatment from this

self-publicist,” Bendtner said in the Daily Telegraph. “I am very

happy with how my rehabilitation has been going under the Arsenal

medical team and expect to be back in training in around six weeks’

time.”
