Domenech: Anelka's fit

19 Nov 2007 - 11:01:48

Bolton Wanderers have been criticised by France manager Raymond Domenech for suggesting Nicolas Anelka's hamstring injury is worse than it actually is.

Trotters boss Gary Megson had told Domenech last week that Anelka was not fit enough to play in the Euro 2008 qualifier against Ukraine.

The former Manchester City and Arsenal forward has missed Bolton's last four games with the injury, but Domenech used the striker in Friday's 2-2 friendly draw against Morocco.

"Anelka has played because of our doctor's talent," Domenech told L'Equipe.

"I understand Bolton. They want to protect a player who has not appeared for them. A little doubt remains.

"So they anticipate and try to make me think that their injury is bigger to have them back.

"Here, we do the required scans. The proof is that Anelka played again and there has not been any problem.

"If we had a little doubt during the last training sessions, I would not have taken any risk. I am not crazy."
