West Brom striker Anelka risks 10-match ban

West Bromwich Albion striker Nicolas Anelka risks a ten-match ban over fighting the FA's charge for his 'quenelle' charge.

West Bromwich Albion striker Nicolas Anelka risks a ten-match ban over fighting the FA's charge for his 'quenelle' charge.

Anelka has denied the Football Association charge over his quenelle gesture and requested a personal hearing in a move which could bring a premature end to his career.

The West Bromwich Albion striker has previously insisted that his goal celebration was not anti-Semitic and has requested a hearing into the charge of making a racially aggravated gesture, which carries a minimum five-match ban.

But if Anelka is still found guilty after the appeal, the ban could be doubled, says the Daily Mal.
