Chelsea ace Anelka: French Federation bunch of clowns!
For 31-year-old Anelka the punishment will almost certainly mean he finishes his international career on 69 caps.
He told France-Soir: "For me, this whole commission thing is a nonsense, a charade not to lose face.
"The so-called punishment has no relevance whatsoever because, for me, the French national team was an issue which ended on June 19 when I was kicked out of the training centre at Knysna.
"This is just to entertain the public, to turn the page because Laurent Blanc needs to be able to work in peace.
"These people are clowns. I am dying with laughter."
