GALLAS INVOLVED IN BUST-UP
Perth Glory is fighting just to stay alive in the A- League. The team of Kenny Lowe suffered their 2nd consecutive defeat when playing against Western Sydney FC which demonstrates how they have been performing in this season.
The last time Pert Glory managed on claiming a victory was back in January when they received Melbourne Heart at their home stadium at the Member Equity Stadium.
The former Tottenham player, William Gallas was involved with a bust-up with the assistant of Kenny Lowe, Andy Ord which started rumors to be spread around concerning the importance that the 36 years old defender has in the club but the CEO of the club, Jason Brewer revealed that he indeed does add value to Perth Glory and is an important member for Perth Glory.
“The signing of William Gallas was something that the former coach Alistair Edwards drove and at one level it’s seen as contradictory to our strategy, but the role he plays in developing players among the environment is crucial,” Brewer said.
“Ask the players how much they’ve learned from his professionalism. That’s justified given the massive void between the young teenage players or 18-21 age bracket and then there’s the 30-plus group.”
William Gallas has played in some of the major Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur which was the last English club which he performed in before signing with the Australian side Perth Glory. During his stay with Arsenal, he suffered a few inconsistent seasons before making his move to Tottenham where his chances of playing was limited to only 59 appearances despite spending 3 seasons in White Hart Lane.
At his 36 years of age, it does not seem like he will be making a move back to the Premier League but instead he is hoping that Perth Glory can jump out of their recent series of negative results and leap out of the bottom spots of the A-League.
