Nicolas Anelka’s controversial legacy in football will be explored during an in-depth Netflix documentary next month.
The former Arsenal and Chelsea striker, who also played for Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and West Brom during a number of fascinating spells in England, has also played in France, Spain, Italy, Turkey, China and India throughout his career.
And the 41-year-old’s exploits will be under the microscope in this feature-length, two-hour documentary featuring interviews from those who knew him best.
Anelka will discuss his childhood, faith, his experience at the Real Madrid, his troubled history with the French coaches and his banning from the World Cup in South Africa, among other things.
From the likes of Thierry Henry and Arsene Wenger to Patrice Evra, Paul Pogba and Robert Pires – some of the most well-known French personalities in football will give their thoughts on Anelka, who was no stranger to controversy during his career.
Bad boy of the French football, arrogant, precocious, misunderstood, scorer, unclassifiable, genius, unmanageable. Despite having a career of almost 20 years at the highest level, Nicolas Anelka is still hard to define. The show will officially drop on Netflix on August 5th.
