Who didn’t watch ‘The Last Dance’ on Netflix during lockdown?
With a little bit more time on our hands a few months ago, the timing of the incredible Michael Jordan documentary couldn’t have been any more perfect.
The series told the story of Jordan’s incredible basketball career, focusing on the Chicago Bulls’ 1997-98 season as they went in search for a sixth NBA title.
But there are a few other incredible-looking sports documentaries on the way.
Football fans can’t wait for Amazon’s ‘All or Nothing’ series on Tottenham’s current season.
Losing 7-2 to Bayern Munich, getting knocked out of the League Cup by League Two Colchester, sacking Mauricio Pochettino, hiring Jose Mourinho, Eric Dier climbing into the stands to confront a fan, Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min squaring up on the pitch…it’s going to be amazing.
But before that’s released, there might be another football documentary that will interest supporters.
It focuses on the enigmatic Nicolas Anelka.
What’s so special about Anelka’s career? Some of you may be asking.
Well, if you can’t quite remember, Anelka played for Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Bolton and Manchester City during his career as well as spells in France, Italy, Turkey, China and India.
But that doesn’t even begin to tell the story of Anelka’s career.
Controversy followed the Frenchman around everywhere and he was nicknamed ‘Le Incredible Sulk.’
He was sent home during the 2010 South Africa World Cup for abusing coach Raymond Domenech at half time. Anelka reportedly said “Va te faire enculer, sale fils de pute," which translates to "Go f**k yourself you son of a w***e.”
But you don’t play for all those major clubs without being a world-class striker - and that’s exactly what Anelka was.
And the trailer for his documentary looks incredible.
The feature-length documentary will focus on his childhood, faith, his time at the Real Madrid, his troubled history with the French coaches and being sent home from the World Cup in South Africa.
It also includes insight from the likes of Thierry Henry, Arsene Wenger, Patrice Evra, Paul Pogba, Robert Pires and Didier Drogba.
It’s going to be incredible.
