Oh no, Anelka’s at it again!
Ah bonjour, Mr Le Grumpy, long time no see
Just when everyone thought Anelka had broken free of his ridiculous sulky reputation, off comes the calming mask of maturity, and he’s at it again.
“When I came to Chelsea, I was told I would play in a 4-4-2 system,” he grumped to French sports paper L’Equipe. “I didn’t come here to play on the right or on the left.”
And that wasn’t his only gripe, after missing the all-important penalty, he suggested that perhaps it was a little unfair to send him on after 110 minutes without warming up and expect his to slot one in from a few yards away. Hence, he didn’t.
Welcome back, Monsieur Le Sulk.
