Gunners captain believes Ronaldo is overrated

Arsenal captain William Gallas has launched a scathing attack on Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United, labelling them 'too arrogant'. The France international believes United's overconfidence may cost them dear come the end of the season. And Gallas is sure that The Gunners, who currently hold a five-point advantage over The Red Devils at the summit of the Premier League table, can take advantage of their complacency and be crowned champions this season. "They are a strong team with lots of experienced players. But, sometimes, they think they're too good. Too arrogant, yes," he told GQ magazine.

"It can make you complacent. We understand that problem. We know we have to score goals, be strong in defence and kill teams in the first half. "Our squad can win things. And I know that it will be difficult for Manchester United to win." Gallas' comments are sure to add further ferocity to what promises to be a competitive FA Cup fifth round tie at Old Trafford on Saturday. The 30-year-old defender went on to shrug off plaudits directed towards United winger Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that he is not that tough to play against. "It was not easy against him but it was not that difficult either," he concluded.
