Gallas Could Miss Important Run In

Gallas Could Miss Important Run In

Former Arsenal captain, William Gallas, limped out of the action in the Champions League quarter final against Villarreal last night, and could miss the rest of the season.

Yesterday night saw the start of an incredibly tough end of season run-in with the CL quarter final first leg taking place in Spain, an FA Cup semi final against Chelsea 11 days later and league matches with Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea still to come, and now it appears we will have to do all that without Gallas after the gaffer confirmed the Frenchman had suffered medial knee ligament damage following an accidental clash with former United player Giuseppe Rossi.

Wenger confirmed the worst,' Gallas has a medial ligament injury,' Wenger told Canal Plus.

'The initial diagnosis doesn't appear to be very positive, but it will be clearer on Wednesday.'

Cesc Fabregas has just returned from a similar injury after a 3 month lay off, and with only 7 weeks remaining in the season, it looks likely that could be it for William.

This is a massive blow. Since his case of verbal diarrhoea and stripped of the captaincy he has been exceptional at the back for us! I have got faith in Silvestre or Djorou though, especially now Kolo looks back to his old self.

It's a little tongue in cheek but Silvestre is at least experienced cover though not with the pace and match sharpness that Gallas has been playing with. On the plus side Kolo looks to be somewhere near his best form. Hopefully he stays fit and whoever he is paired with can do a decent enough job.

Yeah Kolo has been masterful in recent games, quick, commanding, strong in the tackle, it's wonderful to see our last invincible stepping back up to the plate after a rough ride....... and who was it who said he'd never get back to his best? You know who you are!! lol
