Marketing Watch: The Nicolas Anelka quenelle controversy took an unexpected twist. West Bromwich Albion — who the French striker plays for — was given an ultimatum by one of the team sponsors: If West Brom plays Anelka in the team’s next match, Zoopla will immediately cut its £3million shirt sponsorship deal.

The team’s not going to let sponsors dictate roster moves, and is looking for a new sponsor. But the matter may be out of West Brom’s hands. The Daily Mail reports the Football Association will likely slap Anelka with a five-game suspension.
