The Frenchman, who moved to the Emirates Stadium from Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2006, won two Premier League titles under Mourinho at Chelsea, though he admits he also enjoyed his time as an Arsenal player.

Gallas, who also played in the Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur, was one of the best centre-backs in Europe at his peak, and also went on to captain the Gunners, though he is widely viewed as having been something of a disappointment for the club after an infamous strop on the pitch after a 2-2 draw with Birmingham City in 2008.

Speaking to French media ahead of this weekend’s game between his two old clubs, the 37-year-old hinted he’d rather choose to play for the Blues, because they are chasing the title and because he cannot find fault with Mourinho.
