West Brom’s Anelka expected to accept punishment over ‘quenelle’ gesture

West Bromwich Albion striker Nicolas Anelka is not expected to appeal against the FA’s punishment for his use of the controversial ‘quenelle’ gesture, according to the Birmingham Mail.

On February 27, Anelka was handed a five-match ban and an £80,000 fine for his use of the gesture, which is regarded as anti-Semitic. The incident took place while the Frenchman celebrated scoring an equaliser for West Brom away to West Ham United at the end of December.


Anelka has now received the written reasons from the independent governing body who oversaw the case, as to why he found guilty and handed a punishment of that nature, and it is now understood that an appeal is unlikely. The FA could also ask to extend his suspension, as they may believe Anelka’s sentence is too lenient.


After the verdict, West Brom suspended Anelka on full pay while they carried out their own internal investigation into the matter. The 34-year-old will now miss games against Manchester United, Swansea City, Hull City, Cardiff City and Norwich City, as the Baggies battle relegation.
