The Blues also made the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League that yearbut were knocked out by Liverpool 1—0 in controversial circumstances—Gallas cleared the ball, after it was adjuged to have crossed the line.
He refused to sign a new contract with Chelsea on improved terms after saying the club did not offer him enough money and expressed a wish to play in the Italian Serie Awith Juventus and Milan both interested. After the transfer, Chelsea issued a statement that Gallas threatened to deliberately score own goals if he was not allowed to leave Chelsea. It is absolutely incredible. I signed William and he was always a good professional on the pitch.
Of course, I don't know what has happened in the last two years. Gallas signed a four-year contract with Arsenal, where he took the number 10 shirt vacated by the recently retired Dennis Bergkamp.

In the end I thought it might be a good idea to give the number ten to a defender, because a striker would suffer a lot with the comparison with Dennis. At first I was reluctant to give Dennis's number out, and especially to a defender, but overall I think it's better that way. This caused some controversy, however, as Gilberto Silva was expected to receive the captain's armband.
His first competitive game as Arsenal captain was on 12 August against Fulhamwhich ended in a 2—1 victory for Arsenal. In the traditional Arsenal—Manchester United clash at the Emirates Stadium on 3 November, he scored a last-minute goal to give the Gunners a draw. On 16 DecemberGallas scored against his old club Chelsea, which was to be the only goal in the match to secure three points for Arsenal. So I was surprised when he didn't take it, and it was just a reflex reaction to head it into the goal.
I just happened to be there at the right time. He stood there as Birmingham striker James McFadden converted the penalty. He then had to be restrained as he appeared to confront the crowd in fury. Gallas scored for Arsenal against Bolton at Reebok Stadium in a 2—3 win on 29 Marchstarting the comeback which ten-man Arsenal ultimately completed. Amid speculation that Gallas would be replaced as club captain following his behaviour during the Birmingham game, Wenger said that he would consider the matter at the end of the season.
He scored six goals in Arsenal's campaign, including two against Dutch side Twente and an equaliser against Dynamo Kyivas well as a header against Spurs. On 29 Octoberhe scored his first league goal of the season against Tottenham at the Emirates, scoring Arsenal's second goal in a 4—4 draw. On 10 Aprilit was confirmed that Gallas would miss the remainder of the season after damaging the medial ligament in his right knee during the —09 UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg tie against Villarreal.
He finished the season with 14 total appearances for his new club. He also assisted on a goal in the match. After starting in United's 3—1 Champions League win over Benfica on 6 December, Evra started nine consecutive matches.
The rest paid off as he assisted on a Cristiano Ronaldo goal in the 82nd minute to give United a 2—1 lead. France teammate William Gallas later equalised for Arsenal to draw the match at 2—2. The defender denied the charges and was supported by several members of the club's staff, who commented that the player was racially abused by the groundsman prior to the confrontation.
He began the campaign in similar fashion to last season as Manchester United won the Community Shield following the team's 3—0 victory over Portsmouth on penalties. He appeared in both matches the team contested as United came out as champions after defeating Ecuadorian club LDU Quito in the final. In the match, Evra assisted on the second goal in a 3—0 victory.
Evra missed a month and returned to the line-up on 15 February in a 3—0 win over Fulham. We never doubted ourselves. He also became only the second Frenchman after Eric Cantona to captain a Manchester United team to victory in a major competition. As a consequence, he was subjected to a barrage of jeers and boos every time he touched the ball. Marseille coach Rudi Garcia was critical of the fans, but also criticized Evra for reacting to the provocation.
Marseille released a statement concerning the incident, condemning Evra's actions. He has also received a charge of violent conduct from UEFA as a consequence. Marseille subsequently terminated Evra's contract with immediate effect. He signed a contract until the end of June Due to harboring in Italy during his development years, he failed to earn call-ups with teams below the under level. Evra earned his first call-up to the under team under coach Raymond Domenech on 3 October for matches against Slovenia and Malta.

France failed to qualify for both competitions, which resulted in the end of Evra's youth career. Early years[ edit ] Evra earned his first call-up to the senior national team in May after coach Jacques Santini named him to the man preliminary squad to participate in UEFA Euro Following the trimming of the squad to 23 players, Evra was not included and subsequently missed out on the competition.
The defender admitted that he was "very proud" to have been called up to the team. He started on the left wing before being substituted out in the 75th minute for Robert Pires.
The match ended in a 1—1 draw. He appeared as a half-time substitute for Abidal as France won the match 1—0.

Vieira later stated the video was shot after he got into an argument with a set of French supporters. We had three games in this Euro, we have not won one. It's even hard to believe, to say it's over now. What hurts even more is that this apology should have been made yesterday, but my coach stopped me doing it as a captain, and that hurts even more.
But it won't change anything, now is not the time to settle scores. I have nothing to hide.
