Arsenal matchwinner Van Persie: I respect Gallas

After victory at Chelsea, Robin van Persie made a very public gesture of all being well with Arsenal teammate William Gallas.

Arsenal have been portrayed as a crisis club in recent weeks after defender Gallas chose to publicly criticise his team-mates.

Gallas also criticised one un-named 25-year-old Arsenal player for not showing him enough respect. It has been reported that that player is Van Persie, but the Dutchman denied he had a problem with the former Arsenal captain.

Van Persie hugged the France defender after the match and said: "There wasn't a problem at all between (him and Gallas). He's a respectable colleague of mine and a good player."
