Gallas Should Sue Chelsea
This one's a bit of a shocker, to be honest.
Those paragons of virtue, Chelsea FC have released a statement accusing former defender William Gallas of threatening to score own goals if he stayed at the club.
The statement included the following: "He went on to threaten that if he was forced to play, or if he was disciplined and financially punished for his breach of the rules, that he could score an own goal or get himself sent off, or make deliberate mistakes."
Gallas himself is denying all this. Regardless of the truth of the accusations, the statement is timed to have maximum impact and shows how little regard Chelsea now have for the conventions of football.
If these accusations are not true - and my own opinion is that they may not be - then Gallas should sue Chelsea for libel. British libel laws put the onus on the accuser to prove the truth of his words and the newly signed Arsenal player would probably win.
Maybe then Chelsea will think twice about their high handed arrogant approach to players, referees, the laws of the game and so on.
