Nicola Anelka ‘Dying With Laughter’ At The Clowns Who Banned Him For 18 Matches

A wonderfully French reaction by Nicolas Anelka to his 18-match international ban:

“The so-called punishment has no relevance whatsoever because, for me, the French national team was an issue which ended on June 19 when I was kicked out of the training centre at Knysna.

“This is just to entertain the public, to turn the page because Laurent Blanc needs to be able to work in peace.

“These people are clowns. I am dying with laughter.”

That last bit is magic.

I agree with Anelka. The ban is a joke. It’s Raymond Domenech who’s the clown at the heart of this. Okay, the French players took it too far, and essentially disrespected their own fans, but the French Football Federation caused this by keeping on the woeful Domenech past his sell-by date.

Anelka probably isn’t so bothered by the prospect of never playing for France again, but I still reckon the ridiculous 18-match ban will eventually be slashed to something more realistic.

  6. Montesquieu says:

    Small words from a small brain. Anelka proves himself to be an idiot as usual.

  7. DTH says:

    Two rhetorical questions:

    1) Did anybody really think this douche nozzle had “matured” in the years since he managed to screw over both Arsenal AND Real Madrid in the space of about a year in 1999-2000?

    2) The whole sham – especially the players’ strike and Henry having the bare-assed pomposity l to actually sit down on the pitch and chat away with the devastated Irish after the handball incident like nothing had happened – could anyone but the French have the bloody nerve?
