Anelka ‘quenelle’ hearing to begin


Bookmark and Share

By Jonathan Nightingale

Wednesday 26 February 2014

The Football Associations hearing to rule on Nicolas Anelka’s controversial ‘quenelle’ gesture will begin on Tuesday at an undisclosed location, reports BBC Sport.



The 34 year old striker denies a charge of making an improper gesture that was “abusive and/or indecent and/or insulting and/or improper” during West Brom’s draw at Upton Park. The French forward made the sign, which some believe to be anti-Semitic, after scoring in the game.


A three member panel, headed by a QC, will form an independent commission to deliberate evidence provided by lawyers representing both the FA and Anelka. Should the player be found guilty he will face a minimum five game suspension.


The gesture has already caused club sponsors Zoopla to end their current deal in the summer.


The former France international has insisted he is neither anti-Semitic nor racist, and in fact was purely showing support to close personal friend and controversial comedian Dieudonne M'bala M'bala, creator of the quenelle who is currently facing prosecution for anti-Semitism.


The hearing is expected to be completed by Friday.
