Chelsea Striker Nicolas Anelka Gets 18-Match Ban

by | 17th, August 2010

CHELSEA striker Nicolas Anelka has been banned from playing for France for 18 games. He has been banned from playing for truly rubbish team whose shameful performances in the World Cup almost made England look average.

He has been banned from being picked to play in meaningless friendlies and big European nights in Albania and Luxembourg.

Oh, the pain!

In South Africa. Anelka bitched at French coach Raymond Domenech at half-time during the team’s 2-0 defeat by Mexico. Anelka was sent home.

France’s World Cup skipper Patrice Evra was banned from playing for France for five matches for leading a player strike.

Also banned are Franck Ribery (three games) and Lyon’s Jeremy Toulalan for one.

Their replacements are thought to be “disappointed”…
