Nobody likes an unhappy ending, and down at the Emirates Stadium, they're no different. No surprise then, that Arsene Wenger and his hot-headed and loose-lipped ex-captain, William Gallas, have decided to kiss and make up - French style!
The French pair, both moody bastards, had a sulk yesterday, but came out and announced this morning, that they have buried the hatchet, and intend to stage a public display of affection very soon.
Gallas started the rift between the two, after he spoke out about, what he called, "a lack of bravery" amongst his Arsenal team-mates. Readers could be excused for wondering why the petulant Frenchman is talking so openly about a lack of bravery, but Mr Wenger's concern about Gallas' extreme outspokenness goes much deeper than that - and presumably, so will his tongue!
The Gunners' boss does not like his authority to be undermined, and has told Gallas, in no uncertain terms, that he, himself, will do the talking in the future, whilst Gallas should concentrate on his game.
Last night though, just when a stalemate looked on the cards, another ex-Arsenal Frenchman, Thierry Henry, became mediator and spoke to both parties about a truce.
The result is that the two will perform the French Kiss for the crowd before next Sunday's battle with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, where Gallas played before 'switching clubs'.
Henry told reporters:
"They are both big boys and consenting adults. A bit of slug wrestling should do it!"
