Gallas Close To Arsenal Return
Arsene Wenger says that Billy Gallas is close to making his first team return.
Gallas, 29 has now been missing since November after suffering a thigh injury.
Arsenal have clearly missed Gallas as they continue to leak goals you would really expect a team of such quality to defend.
Arsenal have attempted to bring Gallas back to fitness twice since he suffered his injury last year but both times it has been too soon and he has suffered a setback.
Wenger says he will not be making the same mistake this time.
'We rushed him back every time and he had one or two setbacks, but now we are relaxed about it and we don't set any time at all. He will be back soon.
'The good thing is he is progressing well, but to say he will be back next week, certainly not.
'In two weeks, maybe.'
A return to training so soon could see Gallas face his former employers Chelsea in the in the Carling Cup final on Febuary 25th.
