Arsenal skipper Gallas facing massive £180,000 fine

William Gallas' amazing rant against his Arsenal teammates is likely to cost him a cool £180,000. The Sun says boss Arsene Wenger reacted furiously yesterday after Gallas:

- Claimed Theo Walcott and Robin Van Persie fought at half-time in the 4-4 draw against bitter rivals Spurs.

- Revealed a senior Arsenal player "insults" team-mates during games.

- Insisted the rest of the young team cannot stand the Emi-rat.

- Condemned Wenger's youngsters for not being brave enough.

Gallas' claim that there is a rat in the Arsenal dressing room will stun Wenger more than anything else.

His outburst conveniently coincides with the launch of his new autobiography in France today.

But he will pay a heavy price for the added publicity, with Arsenal set to fine their French international centre-back a minimum of two weeks' wages - around £180,000.
