Nolan Roux has hit back at a parody site for linking him with the American actress, with the striker fortunate that his wife can see the funny side

Saint-Etienne striker Nolan Roux has rubbished the reports of a parody site linking him with Baywatch star Pamela Anderson.

The 29-year-old, who is married, saw FootballFrance.fr suggest that he was getting close to the American actress.

He has been able to laugh off the rumours, with his family as understanding as he is that gossip will always be concocted in a modern world driven by social media.

Roux told France Football: “I do not know what guy pulled out that, but congratulations to him.

“I do not see how we can get things out like this! So yes, it's funny for a minute because parody sites do not know what to write. 

“But I wonder how the reporter could believe it and not take it back! Pamela Anderson in Saint-Etienne? It would be a little weird.”

Anderson was recently linked with another Frenchman, having been pictured dining with Sevilla defender Adil Rami.

She is the latest celebrity to have become caught up in a storm surrounding the antics of high-profile footballers.

Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp caused controversy in May when he suggested that Benoit Assou-Ekotto was not a realistic transfer target for the club as he intended to become a porn star!

The former Tottenham defender was quick to distance himself from the comments and Roux believes more “respect” needs to be shown to those at the centre of the allegations.

He added: “What bothers me is that it affects personal life.

“I think no one believes in it, and so much the better. 

“This story reminds me of an article that Benoit Assou-Ekotto stopped football to get into porn. That was also a lack of respect.”

While frustrated to have been dragged into an unnecessary debate, Roux insists that those around him have been able to see the funny side.

Asked what his wife had made of the story, he said: “She also laughed. But it is always a bit annoying to receive text messages from people who wonder how it is possible. 

“Our friends and family do not believe it, fortunately! 

“My friends laugh even. I sent the picture to my mother, she told me they did not know what to invent.”
