Tottenham boss Redknapp: Gallas wrong to speak out

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says William Gallas was wrong to speak out against his Arsenal teammates this week.

Redknapp's first week in charge of Spurs included the 4-4 draw against Arsenal that appears to have destabilised their neighbours, judging by the comments of captain Gallas.

Gallas has spoken out over a row during half-time of that match, as well as other problems within the squad.

"What happens in the dressing room should be kept in-house," Redknapp said. "If you have a problem you should talk to your manager.

"Too often now players are too quick to run to the press. Get on with the job and play football, if there is a problem then sort it out.

"There are always arguments in dressing rooms. The great teams have people sorting problems out, making the job easy for the manager.

"Roy Keane at Manchester United; Arsenal with Frank McLintock. They would be sorting out the problems. If anyone can sort it out, Arsene Wenger can but I'm sure he wants to concentrate on the football."
