Nicklas Bendtner Former Arsenal striker has been sentenced to 50 days in jail for assaulting a taxi driver, the City Court of Copenhagen said on Friday.
The 30-year-old, who plays for Norwegian club side Rosenborg, has been sentenced at a hearing in the Danish capital and was fined £177.
His lawyers confirmed they will appeal the sentence, which will not affect his future with present side Rosenborg, the club told Danish media channel TV2.
Bendtner was charged with beating and kicking a cab driver in Copenhagen on September 9. He confessed hitting the man but said he acted with self-defence after a quarrel over the fare.
The cab driver, whose jaw was broken, was acquitted of violence but fined 3,000 kroner ($460) for using his telephone while driving and not wearing his seatbelt.
