Glowing Report on Keegan From Nicholas Anelka

Nicholas Anelka was interviewed on Sky Sports yesterday, and gave a glowing tribute about Kevin Keegan.


Nicholas Anelka – Kevin at Newcastle,  it’s great,  just great

Nicholas told Sky Sports yesterday:

“I think it is good for the Premier League and English football.” “I worked with him in City and had a wonderful time with him.”

“When I used to play for City I liked to work with him. The Newcastle players will enjoy it.” “He 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.”

“He brings a smile to the pitch and they need it. So he can be good for them.” “He 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. He’s great, just great.”

We had no idea Anelka thought so highly of Keegan. Are we the only ones who think it’s a real pity Anelka has just signed for Chelsea?

Let us know – comments welcome.

    He’s probably already got his eye on a big money move to Newcastle so his Agent (who is also his Brother) can get another top commission.

    Great player- but only ever a bargain when Arsenal stole him for 500,000.

    Clubs have paid ridiculous money ever since.

    Cant believe the ignorant rants about Anelka, probably racist and zenophobic in nature.
    Recent reports from former team mates describe him as both friendly and shy, as far as being lazy that has never been the case in any games i have watched.
    I consider him a great talent, also echoed by Arsene Wenger who would have loved to keep him, I urged in these web sites to sign him from Bolton and believe had that been the case he would have been a great asset to the club.

    Anelka has actually matured in recent years…especially the interviews he has been giving in the last week…Sometimes Toon Fans I dont know what kind of players you expect to have.

    Still wouldnt have thrown 15 million at him though.
