Nicolas Anelka has missed out on the opportunity to have Kevin Nolan help him bed-in after receiving a late call-up to the France squad. Anelka has been named as a replacement for the injured Sidney Govou, ruining Nolan’s plans for a bonding sessions in Spain.
In his BBC column, Nolan said that the Bolton players not on international duty are in Valencia for warm-weather training. "Obviously, we’re having a bit of banter with the new players, helping them bed in and letting them know what we’re all about," he added. You don’t know what your missing out on, Nicolas!
