Former Arsenal captain, William Gallas, limped out of the action in the Champions League quarter final against Villarreal last night, and could miss the rest of the season.

Yesterday night saw the start of an incredibly tough end of season run-in with the CL quarter final first leg taking place in Spain, an FA Cup semi final against Chelsea 11 days later and league matches with Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea still to come, and now it appears we will have to do all that without Gallas after the gaffer confirmed the Frenchman had suffered medial knee ligament damage following an accidental clash with former United player Giuseppe Rossi.

Wenger confirmed the worst,’ Gallas has a medial ligament injury,’ Wenger told Canal Plus.

‘The initial diagnosis doesn’t appear to be very positive, but it will be clearer on Wednesday.’

Cesc Fabregas has just returned from a similar injury after a 3 month lay off, and with only 7 weeks remaining in the season, it looks likely that could be it for William.
