Anelka return would not be welcomed by West Brom supporters

West Bromwich Albion official supporters club would prefer that Nicolas Anelka did not play for the Baggies again. The Football Association banned the 34-year-old French striker for five matches on Thursday and fined him £80,000 for his controversial 'quenelle' goal celebration.

Alan Cleverley, secretary of the official West Brom supporters' club, says: "I think he got what he deserved. It might be for the best if he didn't play again and he wouldn't be missed. It has caused the club a few problems.

"I am quite happy if he doesn't play again and most fans think the same."
