Ex-Chelsea striker Anelka: I rejected PSG for Shanghai Shenhua

Former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka says he chose Shanghai Shenhua over PSG.

Anelka signed for the Chinese mega spenders last month.

"I was contacted by an intermediary of Qatar Investment Authority," he told Canal+. "I did not want to go to PSG because I had already played there.

"I know the French mentality. The people there would have worn me out. It did not interest me.

"Shanghai is Asia's New York. I love the way they live. I often come here on vacation. This is my last contract."
