Redknapp: Houllier couldn't handle Anelka at Liverpool

Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp admits Gerard Houllier struggled to handle Nicolas Anelka.

Anelka is now playing in China with Shanghai Shenhua.

Redknapp told the Daily Mail: "When I played for Gerard Houllier, the Liverpool dressing room loved Nicolas Anelka, because he was a talent and an explosive footballer, but Houllier didn't like the unpredictability of his nature. Some managers can't handle mavericks."
