Nicolas Anelka to sign for Portsmouth?

Ah, the ego has landed, again. Yes, Nicolas Anelka could be playing in the Premiership again, according to… Nicolas Anelka. Never one to keep his opinions to himself, Le Sulk has announced that Portsmouth have offered Fenerbahce £8.2m for his services.

In an admirable bid to endear himself to Pompey fans early doors, Anelka said: ‘My ambition would be to join a club that regularly plays in the Champions
League, but I cannot force them to recruit me… If I had to join a club like Portsmouth, I would go there with the aim of
giving my best.’

If I had to join a club like Portsmouth
… that says it all really. Managers should know by now to avoid Anelka like the plague. He plays for himself and no one else.
