Nicholas Anelka was interviewed on Sky Sports yesterday, and gave a glowing tribute about Kevin Keegan.
Nicholas Anelka – Kevin at Newcastle,Â it’s great,Â just great
Nicholas told Sky Sports yesterday:
â€œI think it is good for the Premier League and English football.â€ â€œI worked with him in City and had a wonderful time with him.â€
â€œWhen I used to play for City I liked to work with him. The Newcastle players will enjoy it.â€ â€œHe used to be a striker so for a striker he is very good. You play a lot of games and have a lot of exercise in front of the goal.â€
â€œHe brings a smile to the pitch and they need it. So he can be good for them.â€ â€œHe was very good for me. It is good when you can speak with the manager.”
“He used to be a very good player and he knows everything about football. He helped me a lot when I had a hard time at City. Heâ€™s great, just great.â€
We had no idea Anelka thought so highly of Keegan. Are we the only ones who think itâ€™s a real pity Anelka has just signed for Chelsea?
