In Top of the Foot on RMC, this Tuesday, Nicolas Anelka revealed that he had passed his coaching diplomas. The former French international (69 caps, 14 goals) is open to proposals, but not to coach in France or England.
He is not “looking for anything at the moment”, but he is “open” to proposals. With his coaching diplomas in his pocket “for more than six months”, Nicolas Anelka let it be known on RMC that he was interested in opening a new chapter in his professional career. “I love football, I have devoted my whole life to it. Today I know I have skills. I have experience, I have been all over the world, so I know how it works. Doing what I love and what I know how to do, yes I am open “, he declared this Tuesday in Top of the Foot.
In charge of training and pre-training at Losc for several months between 2018 and 2020, Nicolas Anelka, now aged 42, is however not interested in a coaching position in France: ” Not here, not in France “.
“I don’t want to live in Europe”
“It does not interest me. Because it is not where I want to live. As I have the possibility and the luxury to be able to choose, I do not think that I will do it in France”, also declared the European champion 2000, before ensuring that his thinking had “nothing to do” with any disenchantment with the country. “I don’t want to live in Europe, actually. I’m in Dubai.”
Pochettino Square, “never in life”
Thus, no question of ending up in England either. “Frankly, that wouldn’t interest me.” Negative response also, when Emmanuel Petit, member of the Dream Team RMC Sport, submitted to him the hypothesis of the Arsenal bench: “No, because you need skills and experience. You need a number of years. Tomorrow, if PSG arrive and tell me that Pochettino is leaving and that we have to take the first team, never in life. On the other hand, if this position offered in the club of the capital concerned training, the former striker would still leave the door open: “Among young people, it’s interesting”.
