Wenger: Gallas out for season

LONDON - France's William Gallas could miss the rest of the season but will be fit in time for the World Cup in June, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday after the defender pulled a leg muscle.

"He pulled his calf muscle and I think it's the end of the season for him," Wenger told French TV channel Canal Plus after his side's 2-2 draw with Barcelona at the Emirates Stadium in their Champions League quarter-final first leg match.

"I do not include the World Cup. I think he will be ready for the World Cup," added Wenger, speaking of the tournament to be held in South Africa from June 11-July 11.
