William Gallas began his professional career at French Second Division side Caen helping them to promotion in 1996. He was subsequently sold to Marseille in 1997, where he spent four seasons, playing alongside former Arsenal star Robert Pires. Gallas moved to Chelsea in 2001 and, under Claudio Ranieri, fashioned a partnership with John Terry that saw them go on a run of 16 games without conceding a goal. In September 2006, Gallas transferred to Arsenal as part of a deal that saw Ashley Cole move in the opposite direction. He signed a four-year contract with the Gunners, making his full debut at left-back in the 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough on 9 September 2006. Internationally, Gallas won the Under-18 European Championships with France before making his full debut in a 5-0 win over Slovenia in a Euro 2004 qualifier. He won his 50th cap in a 3-1 win over Italy in a Euro 2008 qualifier.
