Tottenham defender Gallas: Arsenal problems were not down to William Gallas

Tottenham defender William Gallas has defended his captaincy style at Arsenal.

Gallas was often at odds with his former Gunners teammates.

But he told L'Equipe: "When I was captain I wanted to give a message, but they didn't get it.

"I may have been clumsy, but the substance was right.

"I came from Chelsea where I won titles, and I wanted to share my experience, because I thought we missed commitment in our work.

"My message has not been understood and I am also responsible for that. But unfortunately the last season showed that team still misses something.

"It is too easy to say all the Arsenal problems came from William Gallas."
