    The Football Association's independent commission has released its written reasons explaining why it banned West Bromwich Albion player Nicolas Anelka for five matches.

    The report, which runs to 35 pages, provides the witness statements from Anelka, and arguments from both his and the FA's legal teams.

    It also includes extensive background on the antisemitic material which appears in the performances of French comedian, Dieudonne, who invented the quenelle.

    Both the FA or Anelka have said they will study the document before deciding to appeal.

    A report in the Telegraph today suggested that it is unlikely that either party will seek an appeal.

    Anelka was banned for five games and fined £80,000 by the three-man commission last month. He was found in breach of two FA anti-discrimination rules after performing the quenelle - a form of Nazi salute - during a Premier League match.

    He denied the charges.
