The Baggies have announced that they have given French forward Anelka his release in the wake of his recent suspension.
West Brom decided that the aging forward just wasn't worth the trouble that he's caused this season. Anelka was unapologetic in the wake of his FA-imposed suspension over the "quenelle" gesture. Between that and his lack of production (and a hefty pay packet we'd imagine) the Baggies decided they'd had enough and imposed conditions of Anelka's return that the forward wasn't willing to meet. You could look at it as Anelka quitting or Albion firing him but either way, he's gone and unlikely to play in England again. Sat, Mar 15, 2014 02:35:00 PM
