Arsene Wenger has confirmed his controversial decision to name William Gallas as club captain last season will remain in place for the forthcoming campaign.
Many Arsenal fans, stirred by the media hype of that fateful game at St Andrews last season, believe Gallas is not the right man for the job, however Wenger disagrees.
‘If he plays, he will be captain,’ said Wenger. ‘If he does not play, it will be somebody else. But William will be the club captain, yes.’
