Merde! William Gallas Victim Of Anti-French Bias, Says Frenchman

by | 25th, November 2008

FORMER Arsenal star Emmanuel Petit claims that the British tabloid media has victimised William Gallas because he is black… er, French. French, that’s what we mean.

In an interview with French sports newspaper L’Equipe, Petit said:

“The gutter press in England are doing their job well. They’re only too happy to hit out at French players, as I know myself.

“Look at other French players such as Eric Cantona, too. They’ve done it before.”

Yes, the way the media idolised Cantona was a clear example of the anti-French media stance. Petit himself was very well-respected by British hacks, as was compatriot Patrick Vieira, his former partner at the heart of Arsenal’s midfield.

Gallas is an idiot with a book to sell, end of story. So what if he’s a French idiot. No conspiracy here, Manu.
