William Eric Gallas (-frwiljam ɡalas; born 17 August 1977) is a French footballer who plays for Tottenham Hotspur.

Gallas began his career in France, before being signed by English club Chelsea in 2001. He transferred to rivals Arsenal as part of an exchange deal in 2006. While his career has been marked by both individual and team successes including Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006 he has also encountered controversy as a consequence of his on-field behaviour and friction with other personnel. In 2007, he was named Arsenal's captain, but was removed from the role during the 2008 09 season after criticising teammates in a media interview. Gallas left Arsenal at the end of the 2009 10 season, when his contract expired.
