Nicolas Anelka’s Goal Celebration Is The Epitome Of Douchebaggery

I hated Nicolas Anelka before, when he thought he was too good to be playing for France’s 2010 World Cup squad.  And after this goal celebration, I think I hate him even more now.

For those who don’t get it, allow me to explain.  After a heated exchange between himself and head coach Raymond Domenech during halftime of France’s 2-0 loss to Mexico at the World Cup, Nicolas Anelka was expelled from the team and sent home by the French Football Federation.  Unhappy with his treatment in South Africa, Anelka refused to attend a hearing on the incident with the FFF.  As a result, he received an additional 18-match ban from international play, essentially ending his international career.

Apparently, Anelka feels chastised by the ruling and he wanted everyone to know that, so after scoring a goal with Chelsea during their UEFA Champions League match on Wednesday, he flashed the universal sign for “handcuffs”.  I wonder what the universal sign for “no one cares” is?
