Anelka lining up Drogba

Published Add your comment

Nicolas Anelka has confirmed he will try to lure former Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba to China following his shock appointment to the coaching staff of Shanghai Shenhua.

Confusion still surrounds Anelka's exact position with the club, with the future of manager Jean Tigana unclear. It was reported that Tigana had either been sacked or resigned from the post, but the Frenchman has denied all such stories.

Anelka also wants to recruit former Paris St Germain team-mate Selim Benachour, currently with Maritimo, and he told Le Journal du Dimanche: "I hope Selim Benachour and Didier Drogba will quickly join us I hope they come. It is up to the club to see if we have the right means."
