Chelsea's Anelka: I'm not moody - just shy

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has dismissed claims he's moody.

Anelka, 28, has quickly settled into life at Chelsea after completing a £15million move from Bolton last month.

And the French striker is keen to point out his reputation for being moody is far from the truth.

He said: "When you don't speak with the Press, they make up a story about you.

"And then, when you don't answer, they make up some more about you.

"That's what happened - people made up stories about me.

"But I think if you ask the dressing room, the players know me better and they will tell you who I am.

"I'm sure that if you asked a question, nobody would say anything wrong about me.

"I know who I am, I'm shy and I just live my life."
