Anelka's rant sends France camp into disarray


Written by Chris Wheatley

22 Comments  

France striker Nicolas Anelka has been sent home from the World Cup after after refusing to apologise for his half-time rant at coach Raymond Domenech.

Anelka was asked to apologise by French Football Federation president Jean-Pierre Escalettes and, upon refusing to do so, was asked to leave the squad.

Les Bleus’ mounting problems have only been made worse by Anelka’s insults towards the French boss, with William Gallas also contributing to them.

Juventus-bound Gallas has also acted like a diva throughout the World Cup so far, refusing to go take part in press conferences. Added to that, after Thursday’s defeat against Mexico the 33-year-old swore and gave a French television reporter the ‘finger’.

Fortunately, Arsenal stars Abou Diaby, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna have not been involved in any of the quarrels, instead being praised for their professionalism by several French newspapers.

since when this domencech guy deserves an apology?! he ruined the team,,,
thank God Nasri has not been called to the squad, otherwise who knows what chaos would that dude -who considers himself a coach- have done,,,
bet AW warned Diaby,Sagna & Clichy not to get involved with that oldy!

thx Chris!

Raymond Domenech is just unreal.. How can somebody involved in such a team sport be such a prat & still be longest serving france manager?? it’s seriously unbelievable!

Have to ask yourself just how stupid the french f.a are for having a manager that causes so much problems as im sure if it was the case with any other team they will be out before you know it.

Dont blame anelka one bit really.

If Anelka is the baby, then Domenech is the father, how can you blame the baby. 🙂

Le sulk is le sick. I`ve witnessed over the years what this total tozzer is all about. It`s not about his club, it`s not about his country, it`s ALL about le Sulk. The word professionalism is so,so removed when you mention this froggies name. I`m no fan of Domenech, his man management skills are non-existant. He can`t draw desire out of his squad and the balance between young and old is his squad isnt right either. I surpose Domenech made his bed, he selected Anelka, so he knew what the bald-headed one was going to bring, no goals, just a… Read more »

Obviously the most important thing to come out of this article is the bit about Gallas.

Glad he’s left us, the man seems to be nothing but trouble.

@Gooner&Proud_Q8:
heard there was a conspiracy that they didn’t want to take french players from arab background hence why nasri,benzema, ben arfa wasn’t taken.

I heard that also on 5live Nasri and Benzema created a few divisions but they did not mention that it was anything to do with them being Arab. But it was probably something to do with it.

Let’s sign Mathieu Flamini (beside his quality, he was also Cesc’s best friend at Arsenal), and maybe Hleb if he got used to loud traffic 😀
