Gallas gives one condition for Arsenal to win title this season

Written by on December 6, 2023

Former Arsenal defender William Gallas has suggested that if the Gunners want to win the Premier League title this season, then their captain, Martin Odegaard, must be on fire for the team.

Gallas wants Odegaard to be making a difference in every game for Arsenal just like the club’s former star Dennis Bergkamp and to do more for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Odegaard was a star performer for Arsenal last season.

The former Real Madrid midfielder scored 15 goals and provided eight assists across 37 Premier League matches for Arsenal.

But this season, he has scored four goals and registered two assists across 11 Premier League games.

“I really like Martin Odegaard but I want him to do more and think he can do more, not only because he is the captain, but because he has the quality,” Gallas told Lord Ping.

“He has to do more. I want to see him making the difference in every single game if he wants to go to another level.

“When I compared him to Dennis Bergkamp, Bergkamp was a player who could do something special in almost every game, whether that was a goal or an assist.

“If Odegaard wants to reach Bergkamp’s level, he has to do more. If you want to win the Premier League, you need a player like Odegaard on fire.”
