Harry Redknapp has revealed William Gallas could keep the club captaincy following the memorable win over Arsenal at the weekend.
Gallas, a summer arrival, following his departure from the Arsenal, led the team as captain as we fought back from two goals down to snatch a 3-2 victory at the Emirates. And Redknapp said:
“I made William captain because he would be coming back to Arsenal and it was a good gesture.
“I thought he deserved it the way he’s played and, to be fair, little Luka Modric is captain sometimes but he is quiet and doesn’t say much.
“William led by example. He responded well. I’ll look at sticking with him as captain, especially after this win.
“William has come in and done a good job for us. He came on a free, on half his wages at Arsenal, and he’s shown some character to do that.
“There was no way he was going to go ‘I can’t go to Spurs, I’ve played for Arsenal’. He’s a footballer, he’s played at Chelsea, Arsenal and now Spurs. There is nothing wrong in that.”
So do you think Gallas’ performance was enough to warrant him keeping the captaincy or is it too soon and does he need to prove himself more?
