Despite successful spells at the likes of Arsenal, ChelseaReal Madrid, and Juventus - where he won a combined two Premier League titles, a Serie A title and a Champions League, not to mention a European Championship with France - his career has been doused in controversy.
In the trailer, Anelka is seen saying, “I’m a footballer, I wasn’t there to have fun. If you really like me and want to do what I’ve done, you’ll only make enemies.”
Anelka: Misunderstood will no doubt delve into the ex-Arsenal star's side of the events, with his infamous exclusion from France's 2010 World Cup squad certain to be explored.
Says Netflix: "Bad boy or football genius? Famed French footballer Nicolas Anelka's controversial legacy is examined in an unflinching documentary".
Former team-mates and coaching figures such as ArseneWenger, Thierry Henry, DidierDrogba, Emmanuel Petitand Paul Pogba will all provide insight on the Frenchman.
In one of the most high-profile controversies of his career, Anelka was sent home from theFrance team after allegedly verbally abusing then-coach Raymond Domenech at half-time during Les Bleus' 2-0 defeat to Mexico at the World Cup.
After being criticised for his positioning by Domenech, Anelka reportedly told him in French: "Go f*** yourself you son of a w****".
Anelka refused to apologise for the exchange after being asked to do so by the French Football Federation (FFF). As punishment for the exchange, Anelka was handed an 18-game suspension from international football, though he later claimed he found the situation hilarious as he had already decided to retire from France duty.
His indivudal honours include a Premier League Golden Boot with Chelsea during the 2008-09 season, and a two-time inclusion in the PFA Team of the Year.
He retired from football in 2015 after a stint with Mumbai City FC.
