Domenech's mammy wants to put Anelka in his place

Having been kicked out of the World Cup and sparking a players' mutiny, disgraced striker Nicolas Anelka (pictured) may finally have met his match -- Germaine Domenech, the mother of France's embattled coach.

"I'd like to meet Mr Anelka and give him a piece of my mind as a mother," said pensioner Mrs Domenech.

Chelsea star Anelka was booted out of the World Cup after launching a foul-mouthed tirade against coach Raymond Domenech in the 2-0 defeat to Mexico last Thursday.

He was then expelled before the rest of the squad staged a one-day strike in sympathy by refusing to take part in training.

"It's distressing to be insulted like that, because he is not just the coach but he is also my son. It's a double insult to my son and to me as his mother," said Mrs Domenech.
