Just one game into the season, Anelka quits West Brom
Amazing scenes at the Hawthorns. Just two months after leaving Juventus and signing for Steve Clarke at West Brom, the 34 year old has emptied his locker and apparently quit the game.
Early suggestions are that there was an incident in his personal life and it had nothing to do with football.
Hope it's nothing major, but always seemed to me that he didn't quite live up to the potential he showed at Arsenal. Maybe is was because he never played with anyone as good as Dennis Bergkamp again, but that's just my opinion.
*Stay posted. Seems his agent has died, and he's been given the weekend off, but not officially retired.
