Anelka won't be missed, says West Brom supporters' club

West Brom’s official supporters’ club has claimed that striker Nicolas Anelka will not be missed following his ban over the use of the ‘quenelle’ gesture, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Football Association has banned the Frenchman for five matches and fined him £80,000 following the use of his ‘quenelle’ goal celebration when he scored in the 3-3 draw against West Ham in December.


Anelka was found guilty of an ‘aggravated breach’ of anti-discrimination rules and the secretary of the official West Brom Supporters’ club believes he has played his last game for the side.


"I would be very surprised if he played again,” said Alan Cleverley. “There are 11 games to go and he will miss a minimum of five so it would be a surprise. I think he got what he deserved.”


Despite their current relegation battle, some of the club’s fans are happy to see the back of the striker and believe he doesn’t have ‘the stomach’ to help the Baggies stay up this season.


West Brom are currently just one point ahead of the relegation zone but some supporters feel that the forward is the wrong player for the club.


"He wouldn't be missed,” added Cleverley. “It might be for the best if he didn't play again. It has caused the club a few problems. I am quite happy if he doesn't play again and most fans think the same. Let's move on. Most supporters think he would not be up to the battle.


“You would hardly call him a raving success. It was interesting to watch him play sometimes, but in a relegation battle you have to dig in deep, get stuck in and I am not sure he is the right player for that.”
