Tottenham defender William Gallas says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is wrong to put Champions League qualification ahead of silverware.

Former Arsenal defender ­Gallas, 35, insists his old boss is wrong – and aims to prove it by ­enjoying that winning feeling with Tottenham this season.

Tottenham star Gallas said: “For me, a trophy is something you lift at the end of the season and I know it is a ­fantastic feeling.

“It does not happen many times through your career, so, for me, to ­finish second or fourth is not the same as finishing top as champions. It is completely different.

“You feel different because you are the best team, the best player.

“You are so happy to lift a trophy, it is the real thing to do.

“It is a long time since Tottenham lifted a trophy and I do not know which one we are going to lift, but we are sure we want to lift one.”
