The former Chelsea goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley has slammed William Gallas over various grievances he had with the defender - including his decision to join Tottenham Hotspur.

Pidgeley was on the fringes of Chelsea's first team while Gallas was playing regularly for the Blues.

 

But the then youngster slid down the leagues with Millwall, Woking, Bradford City, Exeter City and Newport County - among others - as his French colleague moved to Arsenal, Tottenham and Perth Glory.

Posting on Twitter on Tuesday evening, Pidgeley took aim at another of his former teammates, Mark Bosnich.

"There’s 5 players during my career that i Iook back on and think what a ***** and he’s (Bosnich) miles ahead in 1st", he wrote.

Asked to name the other four, Pidgeley replied:

Gallas, who moved to Tottenham at the end of his contract with Arsenal, played 78 times for Spurs under Harry Redknapp and another former Chelsea employee, Andre Villas-Boas.

He left Spurs in 2013 and retired the following year, at the age of 37.

Now 35, Pidgeley hung up his gloves in 2018 after a spell at Farnborough.
