Gunners fans might be scrambling through the players’ date of births after this latest revelation from one of their senior squad members. Once again, this Arsenal defender has made the headlines for the wrong reasons.
William Gallas doesn’t seem to be the steadiest of people, perhaps not exactly the right choice to be captain on Arsenal. Arsene Wenger has stuck with the Frenchman after an indifferent spell as skipper last term, although he might not be too happy that the ex-Chelsea player has decided to spill the beans with regard to a dressing room bust-up as well as being cussed by one of his team-mates. Sporting Life has all the details.
“When, as captain, some players come up to you and talk to you about a player…complaining about him… and then during the match you speak to this player and the player in question insults us,” Gallas told AP. “There comes a time where we can no longer comprehend how this can happen.
“I am trying to defend myself a bit without giving names. Otherwise I’m taking it all (the blame). It’s very frustrating,” he said. “I’m 31, the player is six years younger than me.”
He has also revealed a bust-up at half-time of the 4-4 draw with Spurs, saying: “There was a problem at halftime. The only thing that I could say at halftime was ‘Guys, we resolve these problems after the match, not at halftime.’
These revelations surely support the fact that either the Arsenal team are an unruly mob of players, or William Gallas does not command the respect of his peers enough to be captain. What is the supporters take on this story, just who is the abusive player in question?
