West Brom may lose shirt sponsor as Anelka ‘quenelle’ saga drags on; How has FA not ruled?   Leave a comment

I’m of two minds on this….on the one hand, given the position West Brom is in at present, odds are Anelka will be on the pitch Monday agst. Everton. On the other hand, given the controversy over Anelka’s display of the quenelle salute a few weeks back, this has the potential to get very ugly very fast.

The furor over Nicolas Anelka’s “quenelle” post-goal salute continues to grow and, frankly, it’s more than a little disconcerting that people in power haven’t stepped up to find a solution.

A quick recap: In late December, Anelka scored a brace for West Brom in a 3-3 draw. For one of his celebrations, he mimicked a salute from his comedian friend that has come to be considered as anti-Semitic. The FA still hasn’t handed out discipline and the Baggies excuse has been that they’re waiting for the FA.

The latest development? West Bromwich Albion may lose their shirt sponsor Zoopla if Anelka plays on Monday night. It’s a pretty safe bet he will, as the Baggies won’t want to set a dangerous precedent by letting a sponsor dictate team selection, but the point is much greater.

The news, like most strong football talk, comes from Marketing Week:
