The quenelle is a gesture invented by French “comedien” Dieudonné M'bala M'bala, intended as a reverse Nazi salute. The overtly anti-semitic gesture was used to celebrate Nicolas Anelka’s goal for West Brom against West Ham in 2014. Absurdly, after using the celeration, and knowing the
meaning of it, Anelka would go on to defend his actions as not racist. Subsequently, he was dismissed from his duties at West Brom, which explains why he now plays his professional football for Mumbai City.
