William Gallas’s Arsenal career looks in danger after he was stripped of the captaincy and dropped for today’s match at Manchester City.
Former Gunners skipper William Gallas hit the headlines this week with an outburst that lifted the lid on dressing room rifts at Arsenal. But he’ll be ruing the decision to go public with his thoughts after being stripped of the captaincy by furious boss Arsene Wenger.
Wenger decided Gallas had pushed things far enough and in an angry exchange, Gallas walked out of the club.
Gallas’s tirade in the press this week saw the French international try and place all the blame for the difficulties at Arsenal on his team mates.
I am trying to defend myself a bit without giving names, otherwise I’m taking it all (the blame). It’s very frustrating.
I have to win something this year, I have to win something, Arsenal has to win something.
It’s four or five years since Arsenal won anything. That’s nearly five years and that’s not good.
It is understood the 31-year-old centre-back has been dropped for the trip to Manchester City this today.
Manuel Almunia is most likely to wear the armband today, as Cesc Fabregas is suspended and Kolo Toure injured.
