Arsenal defender William Gallas has questioned the Gunner’s transfer policy this summer and indicated that the players have their doubts about the club’s ambition.
Gallas said he wants to discuss plans for next season with manager Arsene Wenger before the new campaign kicks off.
The 29-year-old said on his own website, www.williamgallas.net: “What is sure is that several players are questioning the club’s future.
“Around us all the teams are recruiting but what is planned to compensate for the departure of ‘Titi’ Henry? I am not at Arsenal to play for third place. It is necessary to recruit players of reputation because the young players have many qualities but the season is very long.
“The young players are thirsty for victories but Arsenal must obtain results, win titles in this period. If not, we will have to change policy and do the same as the other teams: recruit with more means.
“I will have a discussion with Arsene Wenger and certain board members in order to find out what the objectives are for the club this season and what they wish to set up to build an even more competitive team.”
Gallas was non-committal about his own future at the club, adding: “Today, I am an Arsenal player but I do not know what can occur tomorrow.”
