Pic: Nicklas Bendtner's reason for missing Wolfsburg's match against Dortmund is vintage Bendtner

It seems like the Danish striker had a good night...

Fans of the Bundesliga will know that Wolfsburg have been an absolute revelation so far this season despite the fact that they're 11 points off leaders Bayern Munich.

Wolfsburg's much maligned but often comical striker Nicklas Bendtner has been in fine form for his new club recently, the Dane has scored five goals in his last six matches for club and country, but he was unavailable for their recent 2-2 draw away to Borussia Dortmund.

Rather than travel to the Westfalenstadion to watch and support his teammates against Jurgen Klopp's side it seems that the on-loan Arsenal striker had a much more important thing on his list of priorities.

Who knows, maybe it was his mother arriving to see him for Christmas?

We doubt it.
