William Gallas known for his bad attitude has been reported to be on bad terms with Samir Nasri. According to Nasri though it was just an ordinary little argument in a training session which was before he joined Arsenal. But now, he says, it has long been forgotten and that now they get on well.
“We had words at the Euros but it was during a training session and immediately forgotten. Since I came to Arsenal there has been no problem. We have got on well in my time here. They are just the type of things that can happen in training. It was just something that we didn’t agree on. It was all forgotten that night and we had a chat at the hotel. I don’t know why it had so much coverage. It was all over something and nothing. People said I showed a lack of respect for Thierry Henry. Quite simply when I started out in the French national side, Henry had been out with a back injury and I had been sitting in a place on the coach which in his return turned out to be where he sat. As soon as I discovered that I got up and let him sit down. Maybe people were looking for excuses because we had done badly in the Euros but certainly I don’t think you can blame that on the fact that I sat in Thierry Henry’s seat.”
Seems like a small issue. Just because he sat in Henry’s seat doesn’t mean he doesn’t respect him! And as for that argument in training between the two, it’s no surprise considering the character of Gallas! Gallas had also mentioned in his autobiography a 20 year old who did not show respect to his elder players in Euro 2008. That 20 year old was reported to be Nasri. But lets not make a big deal of this issue as its a thing of the past and Gallas has learnt to shut up now!
Meanwhile there has been some crazy talk going on in the papers about Adebayor to be sold to Barcelona in the summer for £20m. Though I want him out, but he will never fetch that much amount of money and that it is just a stupid attention seeking news. Fabregas has also been linked to Real Madrid. Again crap news. It is just too early to be talking about such transfers right now.
To link up with Adebayor’s departure, Huntelaar is being straight away rumoured as a possible replacement. The Dutchman has been a failure at Real Madrid where he moved for £17m. Real want to offload him and Wenger has always been fond of the striker so everyone can straight away start making stories about him coming to Arsenal.
