Such a quality midfielder. So underrated too as he’s hardly ever mentioned when people talk about quality players in the PL.
How Gallas got the captaincy over him is honestly one of the biggest Arsenal mysterys there is.
He always was, even when he was at the club. He never banged his own drum like others and was the man next to Vieira which I think explains some of why he doesn’t get the same recognition
Criminally underrated and agree with you on the captaincy, scandalous!
Just an absolute professional of a player and not a single bad word to say about him, always quietly went about his business and and off the field. Loved his no nonsense approach and a player I geneuineky still enjoy seeing about his social media.
