Arsenal skipper Gallas admits injury heartbreaker

Arsenal captain William Gallas admits his injury problems have brought him near to tears.

Gallas, sidelined since injuring his groin against Blackburn on August 19, is struggling to cope after missing out on all the fun.

The French defender, 30, said: "These are tricky times for me.

"I am very unhappy at being injured all the time and I need to remain mentally strong.

"I know I ought to remain positive but it is very difficult to do so.

"I don't want to cry but when you work hard and you feel this pain it is hard to accept.

"I am strong and I will make a comeback - but when, I don't know."
