NICOLAS ANELKA has played for some of the biggest clubs in the world but he admits he got it wrong at Juventus.

After a career that spanned France, England, Turkey, China and India, the former striker has described his stint in Italy as the worst of his career.

Signing on a six-month loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January 2013, Anelka played just three times and failed to score as the Bianconeri won the league.

Speaking to TuttoJuve in 2019, the Frenchman, 41, said: "I had decided to accept Juve because it is a great club, with a good history and also because they were leading Serie A.

"Unfortunately, this will remain my worst experience [in football] since I only played 45 minutes and I never wore the shirt at Juventus Stadium in front of the fans.

"Honestly, when someone talks to me about Juventus I try to change the subject immediately... I'm ashamed of that transfer!

"I played and scored for all the teams I signed for, except Juve.

"So without disrespecting that great team, it cannot be said that I was their player because of how that experience went."

The forward spent the first couple of months on Juve's bench, all three outings coming off the bench, before injury took him out of a chunk of the run-in.


Few footballers can boast the trophy cabinet of Anelka, who added the Scudetto to his CV despite the quiet Juventus spell.

He also won league titles with Arsenal, Fenerbahce and Chelsea, a Champions League with Real Madrid, and Euro 2000 with France.

Now retired, Anelka wants to pursue a career in coaching having tried his hand at working with Ligue 1 side Lille's academy.

The Parisian noted: "I have just finished working for Lille, I was the attacking coach.

"It was a wonderful experience.

"This year I have passed my qualifications and I can finally become a coach."

Fulham join Ben Brereton Diaz transfer race but face competition from FOUR Premier League rivals for Blackburn star

FULHAM have entered the race to sign Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz.

Blackburn last night rejected an opening £8.4million offer from French club Nice as they hold out for a much larger initial fee.

Diaz, 23, has just one year left on his contract and has garnered plenty of interest in Europe, with a host of Spanish clubs also tracking his progress.

Fulham are one of a number of Prem clubs keen on the former Nottingham Forest man.

Everton, Bournemouth and Leeds United have all registered interest while West Ham are long term admirers.

Cottagers boss Marco Silva is in need of further investment after summer signing Manor Solomon was ruled out until after the World Cup following a knee injury and surgery.

Given his contract situation, should the Chile international not leave this month he can negotiate with clubs abroad from January and leave for nothing at the end of the season.

Rovers, however, have a need to sell before the summer window closes.

The Championship club have the lowest transfer budget in the division.

Chiefs at Ewood Park could be tempted by an initial offer of £12-15million before add-ons.

Two goals in three games so far from Diaz could well have aided their cause in demanding a higher fee.

Fulham are also close to agreeing a deal to sign Justin Kluivert, son of Dutch legend Patrick, from Roma.

The west Londoners have already made seven signings since their promotion from the Championship, having added Solomon, Joao Palhinha, Issa Diop, Andreas Pereira, Kevin Mbabu, Bernd Leno and Shane Duffy.
