Complainant Name:
Nicklas Bendtner

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Nicklas Bendtner, the Arsenal footballer, complained that an article was inaccurate when it claimed that he had said “I should start every game, I should be playing every minute of every match and always be in the team”.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction:

On 15 February, under the headline ‘Big ‘Ead Bendtner’, we quoted Nicklas Bendtner, from an interview given to a Danish newspaper, as saying “I should start every game, I should be playing every minute of every match and always be in the team”. Nicklas Bendtner actually said “I constantly believe that when I am in my best playing form then I should play from the start, whoever is ready or injured”. We are happy to make this clear and regret any misunderstanding.

Report: 79
