In desperate need of change, they decided that Anelka might as well take charge of the training sessions since he is Nicolas Anelka. They had Jean Tigana in charge, I cannot figure out Jean Tigana, has he done anything in his managerial career to allow him to keep getting jobs? I remember he won the Championship with Fulham but he did have a ridiculous amount of money to spend, he even spent £2m on Steve Marlet. A quick look through his Wikipedia page tells me that he has been sacked from every job he has had, stop hiring him!
Anelka confirmed that he was Shenhua's new player-coach on Twitter, which confirmed just how utterly ridiculous this whole situation is.
