POLOKWANE, South Africa - A spokesperson for The French Football Federation is investigating allegations that one of the members of the French National Team violated established French soccer rules.
The FFF is alleging that Nicolas Anelka willingly and woefully gave to an unnamed player from Cameroon the secret recipe to French Dressing.
Anelka adamantly denies these charges and says that they were fabricated by a disgruntled ex-girlfriend whom he identified only as Monique.
Two of Anelka's teammates Andre Pierre Gignac and Cedric Carrasso back up Nicolas and say that he has not spoken to Monique since he dumped her back in April when he caught her playing 'kiss my croissant' with three members of the Bordeaux team in the back of a French postcard shop located next to the Eiffel Tower.
The French coach Raymond Domenech has stated that he does not believe Anelka and has removed him from the team. The other players protested Domenech's actions and not only refused to practice, they also refused to participate in the can-can party that was thrown for the team by President Nicolas Sarkozy's wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
Coach Domenech reportedly became so embarrassed at the actions of his players that he has waved France's secondary flag aka the white flag.
The noted French sports soccer magazine, Ooh La La Goal has called for Raymond Domenech to resign immediately or risk being arrested for violating France's soccer regulation which states that a coach will maintain a happy team at all cost and he will not ever wave the white flag like France did during World War II.
Domenech has refused to resign and says that they will have to take his coach's ID card by force.
