GALLAS BEGS FOR PATIENCE FOR LACAZETTE

Former Arsenal skipper William Gallas has asked for patience for new star signing of the club Alexandre Lacazette.


The Lyon striker joined the club recently for a record fee. Even before the season is to start there has been pressure on the French star to impress.

“We have to give him time. Sometimes it’s not easy to change country, you have to speak another language. It’s not easy to settle very quick. I know in football everything is about results so if he doesn’t score many goals people will judge him straight away. We have to give him two years to see what he can do,” Gallas pleaded.

Gallas is featuring in the ongoing Star Sixes event at the London O2 Arena as part of the French soccer legends contingent. The retired player refused to endorse the player for success at the Emirates but he generally wishes the best for his compatriot.

“In France he was a great, great player. He scored so many goals. Now he’s in the Premier League it will be a different league, a new challenge for him,” the Frenchman explained.

Lacazette started his career at Arsenal on a good note though. He scored in his pre-season debut when the Gunners faced Sydney FC in Australia this week. The 26-year old has a lot to prove if he wants to be taken seriously.

Laca, as fondly called, netted an impressive 101 goals in 203 games in the Ligue 1 but he is yet to be appreciated as much as others. Leaving his comfort zone and coming close to such feats would surely earn his the admiration of many. Arsenal for one needs his goals this term as they put up a serious challenge for the Premier League title.

MBAPPE COULD BE THE FIRST £100 MILLION PLAYER

Ligue 1 star KylianMbappe could be the first person to reach the £100 million mark in football going by the buzz around him.


The player only made the first team in December 2015 but after an impressive run in the league and Champions League this term, his value has shot very high.

European sides are competing for his signature. Arsenal reportedly placed a club record fee of £87.5 million for the player while Real Madrid are preparing to better the offer. Monaco rejected the offer to sell their youth star for many reasons; victory is sweet and replacement would be difficult and expensive as well.

Mbappe started well at a young age and he was noticed early. He was at the Clairfontaine Academy – the same famed institution that developed stars like William Gallas, Nicolas Anelka and Thierry Henry. He was in England for a bit but eventually signed for Monaco. He is the youngest player to feature for Monaco, breaking Henry’s record. He broke another record by Henry when he scored his first goal at 17 years.

The French star is touted as one that could potentially develop into something brilliant. His pace, eye for goal and skills are impressive. The player has self-control and not easily impressed like other youngsters. He says he does not have a car yet and his mother still drives him to training.

For every 70 minutes, the kid scores a goal or creates one. This is the reason the biggest clubs want him in their team. Wenger revealed that he went to his home in France to try to convince him but Monaco fought off his offer. Some French sources say the player might be open to a move to Arsenal and have the team built around him like Henry. For now he remains at Monaco.
