William Gallas: Abou Diaby is the mentally the strongest player I have ever seen

Speaking on SFR Sport, William Gallas this evening revealed that Abou Diaby is mentally the strongest player he has ever come across.

“Drogba? Not even. Abou Diaby. Mentally for me he is the strongest player. He is always injured, sadly he has always had injuries. And the guy mentally is always still there, he smiles. How many injuries has he had? He is still smiling. I got to know him at Arsenal. He was always injured, but always smiling. And he has said in the newspapers that each time he plays, he is scared of getting injured again. I can relate to that because I injured my calf. You have to be strong.”
