thumbnail Hello,

The loaned out Arsenal striker apparently had to beg strangers for money after he was unable to purchase his meal, and allegedly asked staff: "Don't you know who I am?"

Sunderland striker Nicklas Bendtner was forced to ask complete strangers for money on Saturday evening as his credit card was declined as he tried to pay for pizza, according to Danish paper Ekstrabladet.

The loaned out Arsenal man stopped at a pizzeria in Copenhagen where he placed his order of pizzas but was then unable to pay for them.

The newspaper reported that the 23-year-old tried to get the pizzas for free and even asked staff: “Don’t you know who I am? I can buy the whole pizzeria.”

An unnamed member of staff told the paper: “We told him that it did not matter who he was. If he could not pay, there was no pizza.”

A fellow customer informed the paper: “He was f***ing arrogant; acted as if he owned the place. All the people just stood and looked at each other and shook their heads over the way he behaved.”

After the argument, two girls decided to pay for the food and Bendtner left in a taxi.
