Megson fires Anelka warning

12 Nov 2007 - 16:53:13

Bolton Wanderers manager Gary Megson has told France boss Raymond Domenech that Nicolas Anelka is not fit enough to play for his country in next week's Euro 2008 qualifier against Ukraine.

The former Manchester City and Arsenal forward has missed Bolton's last four games with a hamstring injury, but will meet up with the rest of the France squad before the Ukraine match.

"Nicolas has to go, we know that, so they can see what state he's in," Megson told the Manchester Evening News.

"He has this tear on his hamstring and the prognosis was six weeks on the sidelines.

"It would be a huge mistake if they said he had to stay, then train and play. It would be a nightmare for Nic and for us.

"We've spoken to Nic and told him what we think. He accepts that. However he still has to report to the squad.

"We're glad some of our players will have a breather during the international break.

"Maybe during this time we'll also be able to get some of our injured lads back. Given the position we're in we need to start winning games, especially at home."
