Gallas reveals Arsenal rifts
Arsenal skipper William Gallas has revealed rifts in the dressing room undermining the club's current campaign and has suggested his team-mates have been unsettled by one member of the squad.
Gallas has called Arsene Wenger's side "not brave enough in battle" and has urged them to fight to revive a season that has already included four league defeats.
The 31-year-old also claims that some of his team-mates have approached him to complain about one member of the squad. Gallas would not reveal the player's identity but revealed the team-mate to be six years younger than him.
"Then during the match you speak to this player and the player in question insults us," said Gallas in an interview from France on BBC Online. "There comes a time where we can no longer comprehend how this can happen."
Gallas also revealed a row at half-time during the 4-4 draw against rivals Tottenham when they conceded two goals at the death.
It is the latest outburst from Gallas, who has consistently had his leadership questioned.
The France centre-back had a bizarre tantrum at Birmingham last season when Arsenal's title bid suffered a blow, while this season he has been pictured with a cigarette during a night out.
It is the last thing boss Wenger would have wanted after a week where he lost Theo Walcott for at least three months following his injury suffered while training with England ahead of the win over Germany.
