Nicolas Anelka

Anelka joins Mumbai City FC after spending time in the Premier League at Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion.

Former Arsenal and Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka appears to be continuing his football career in India after his career in England ended last season at West Bromwich Albion.

The controversial Frenchman announced on twitter that he was joining Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League.

He tweeted:

Anelka was given a ban of five games last season after celebrating a goal he scored for West Brom against West Ham United using the controversial quenelle gesture - but the Baggies terminated his contract towards the end of last season.

After starting his career off at Paris Saint-Germain, he signed for Arsenal and won the domestic double with them in his first season in 1997/98 before moving to Real Madrid at the end of the following season. He returned to PSG and spent a period on loan at Liverpool before moving to Manchester City. 

From then on he played for Fenerbahce, and Bolton Wanderers before moving to Chelsea - where he won the Premier League and the FA Cup twice.

He also spent time in Italy with Juventus before moving to the Hawthorns. He scored a total of 158 goals for clubs in English football.
