Gallas stripped of Arsenal captaincy

William Gallas has been stripped of the Arsenal captaincy and dropped for the Gunners' trip to Manchester City according to reports. The outspoken 31-year-old recently questioned his team-mates bravery and ability to deal with the demands of the Premier League.

With Cesc Febregas and Kolo Toure out injured it looks as if Arsene Wenger will hand the captain's armband to either Manuel Almunia and Gael Clichy. The news seems to put Gallas' Arsenal future in doubt.

The Frenchman talked about ending his career at Paris Saint Germain in a recent article in the Evening Standard. But this week's events could see Gallas getting his wish sooner than he had expected.
