Nicolas Anelka given 18-match France suspension

Recommended Posts

Nicolas Anelka has been banned for 18 matches by the French Football Federation (FFF) over his conduct at this summer's World Cup.

Anelka was sent home from South Africa after a row with coach Raymond Domenech and, in protest, the France team boycotted a training session.

Patrice Evra was captain of the team and has been banned for five matches for his part in the revolt.

Franck Ribery has been suspended for three and Jeremy Toulalan for one.

None of them is irreplacable. We have young and very talented players waiting for a shot in the France squad, and with the new coach we have a fresh start. How many team get to have a real fresh start?

We maybe lost the friendly of last week, but we certainly saw potentiel.
