Arsenal's Wenger offers axed Gallas a shock recall

London, Nov.24 : Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has said that he may recall axed skipper William Gallas if he apologises to his team-mates.

Defender Gallas was stripped of the captaincy and left out of Saturday's defeat at Manchester City.

However, the Daily Express quoted Wenger as saying: "Cesc Fabregas will be available and maybe Gallas. We can change a captain without making a political issue. Of course, he has a future here but the less we talk the better."

Gallas is likely to have to say sorry to the whole squad before training this morning before Wenger reinstates him - a stipulation that could well represent far too large a helping of humble pie for the deposed club captain.

But Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn has pleaded with Gallas to back down.

He said: "If Gallas is to remain at the club, he has got to apologise."
