London: Former France striker Nicolas Anelka has joined Atletico Mineiro, according to the Brazilian club's president.
The 35-year-old has been without a club since being sacked by West Brom last month following his use of the allegedly anti-Semitic 'quenelle' gesture when celebrating a goal.
Atletico president Alexandre Kalil posted on Twitter yesterday morning "Anelka e do Galo", which translates as "Anelka is a rooster", in reference to the club's nickname.
