Former Arsenal striker Perry Groves is calling on Arsene Wenger to take action against William Gallas after his latest outburst. Groves is in no doubt what action Wenger should take, saying: "Gallas has been an absolute disgrace. I said a year ago that he should not have been made Arsenal captain.

"He should have been stripped of the captaincy ever since his behaviour at Birmingham.

"He has brought into disrepute all the great Arsenal captains of the past. For him to have the front to say that we have got to be like warriors! I could name four or five goals we have conceded this season where he has not been prepared to get himself hurt.

"The goal we conceded against Fulham is one example, the one against Aston Villa, when he got knocked off the ball like an Under 15 defender, is another.

"Arsene Wenger has to take some responsibility because he is the one who made him captain. He should take the captaincy off him."
