William Gallas today took a swipe at his former boss, Jose Mourinho after his time at Chelsea came to an end.
Gallas' words are likely to enrage Chelsea fans, who lets face it, some of which are as fickle as Josie Maureenho.
The French centre back is endearing himself to Arsenal fans more and more each day as his words constantly building up our hopes for the season whilst at the same time angering the supporters from the bridge.
The new Gooner believes he was hung out to dry by the Chelsea gaffer after he gave the blues 5 years excellent sevice, whilst at the same time issuing Cole a warning.
'I wanted to leave Chelsea and Arsenal was the perfect club for me,' Gallas told The People. 'They wanted me, they are a team going for all the honours, and I am very happy in London and I have a lot of friends here.
'I am happy that I have joined Arsenal. I'm sure I will be treated better by their coaching staff than I have been by Mourinho in the last year. I wish Cole luck and I hope he has the patience to put up with his manager.'
Gallas claims he is not the only player to suffer at the hands on the special needs one.
'Mourinho is a good trainer but he is fickle with his players, what has happened to me has happened in the past to Ricardo Carvalho, Mateja Kezman, Paulo Ferreira, Asier Del Horno and Hernan Crespo.
'He uses us for his convenience. In the past few years I have had offers from Italy and Spain but I stayed loyal to Chelsea. But this has counted for nothing with Mourinho and that is sad. Mourinho has pressured me constantly as if he wanted to get the press and the fans against me.
'I don't understand it. In the dressing room my team-mates have been supportive but Mourinho is the boss and so nobody has spoken out for me.
'In football terms, Chelsea were great for me because I won things there but it was if I had become a nuisance for Mourinho and I don't understand why.'
Nearly every players who has left Arsenal have gone on to do very little with their careers, whilst the player on the older end of the spectrum have had their playing lives extended considerably, which is something I'm sure Gallas will benefit from.
Keep it up William, you will be worshipped at the Grove.
