William Gallas Misses Match, Drives a Chrome Mercedes
We're not sure if this is the case of Arsenal defender William Gallas but his chrome Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren can not pass unnoticed. According to Daily Mail, the footballer didn't play in the Saturday match against Blackburn, yet, he found a way to attract media attention by leaving the Arsenal's Emirates stadium in North London in his £350,000 chrome Mercedes.
Although the color of the vehicle is rather odd, the Mercedes owned by the 31-year-old football player is believed to be the fastest convertible in the world as it reaches 60 mph in only 3.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 207 mph.
William Gallas is a graduate of the French Football academy at Clairefontaine. He started his professional career at second division SM Caen helping them to promotion as champions in 1996. He currently plays for Arsenal in the English Premier League where he had a controversial evolution. Arsenal's Number 10 was the captain of the team for the 2007-2008 season and part of the 2008-2009 season but in November last year he had been stripped of the captaincy permanently. Still, the footballer is believed to still have a future with the club.
