Spurs defender admits fitness struggle

Gallas failed to impress in the Champions League defeat to Inter Milan earlier this week and has blamed his poor performance on fitness problems.

“People in France say that I am burnt out,” Gallas told L’Equipe.

“Maybe I am because I had a bad time at the World Cup.

“I was not up to standard, but I was not the only one. I only began training on August 20 and didn’t play for two months.”
