New Signing Nicolas Anelka Wants to End His Career at West Brom: Daily Soccer Report

nicolas anelka 600x398 New Signing Nicolas Anelka Wants to End His Career at West Brom: Daily Soccer Report

West Bromwich Albion striker Nicolas Anelka wants to end his career at the Baggies.

The former Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool forward has been around the block a few times, to say the least, but hopefully the 34-year-old striker can go out with a bang:

“I think I will finish in England, I’m happy here. I also hope that it will be with this club. I think this is the right club for me. I’m 34 years old now and I want to enjoy my football. I hope everything will be perfect.

“I’ve always liked West Brom. I have a lot of good memories of playing against West Brom, and now I have to do my best to score for West Brom. When I was playing for Chelsea, it was always tough to beat Albion.”

What’s your opinion? Do you think Anelka still has the skill and pace to succeed at West Brom to replace loanee Romelu Lukaku? Or will Anelka see most of his time sitting on the bench this season for Albion? Share your opinions in the comments section below.

    They paid supposedly 5 million quid for this OAP? If Michael Owen couldn’t cut it at his advanced age, no way Anelka will. What a waste of money!

    Nicolas ended his career some time ago. He just neglected to tell any of his employers of this fact.
