Ah, the ego has landed, again. Yes, Nicolas Anelka could be playing in the Premiership again, according toâ€¦ Nicolas Anelka. Never one to keep his opinions to himself, Le Sulk has announced that Portsmouth have offered Fenerbahce Â£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 meâ€¦ 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 Portsmouthâ€¦ that says it all really. Managers should know by now to avoid Anelka like the plague. He plays for himself and no one else.
