Anelka charged over controversial celebration - thoughts?


West Brom's Nicolas Anelka faces a minimum five-match ban if found guilty by the Football Association of making the controversial "quenelle" gesture.

The striker made the sign, described as an inverted Nazi salute, after scoring against West Ham on 28 December.

Anelka was given a 34-page document detailing the allegations and has until 18:00 GMT on Thursday to respond.

West Brom sponsor Zoopla will end its agreement with the club at the end of the season because of the incident.

What is your opinion of Anelka's celebration, and what punishment would you give him? Do you think it's right that West Brom continue to play him? Innocent until proved guilty in my opinion. Was stupid to do the celebration, should've realised it would cause uproar.

That gesture is seen as an anti establishment gesture in France. Once again I think it's been blown well out of proportion. It's clear Anelka didn't mean the gesture in a racist manner. Political correctness gone mental yet again.
