An Independent Regulatory Commission has today released the written reasons in the case of The FA versus Nicolas Anelka.
Both parties have seven days to consider any appeals, ending on Thursday 13 March 2014.
The Independent Regulatory Commission had previously found an aggravated breach of FA Rule E3 against Nicolas Anelka proven and issued a five-match suspension, a fine of £80,000, and that the player be ordered to complete a compulsory education course.
It follows his controversial 'quenelle' gesture in a match against West Ham in December. The player has always denied it was an anti-semitic gesture, instead saying it was a show of solidarity with a banned French comedian.
