Former France International William Gallas revealed how Senderos literally used to have panic attacks before coming up against Ivorian forward, Didier Drogba.
“I knew Philippe Senderos, before a match he would need to speak a lot, you could see that he was sweating, that he did not feel good,” Gallas told RMC.
“And unfortunately, when you saw him on the pitch, he lost his playing abilities, he didn’t play well. But against his own team-mates, he played better.”
Didier Drogba just loved playing against Arsenal.
For Chelsea, the striker played 15 times against the Gunners, losing just once and scoring 13 times.
He just enjoyed bullying that Arsenal defense.
And it seems Arsenal defenders just hated playing against him.
Well, one man did anyway – Philippe Senderos.
The Swiss defender was at Arsenal for seven seasons, playing more than 100 times.
But he failed to ever convince Gooners of his ability and comments from his former defensive partner William Gallas won’t do anything for his reputation amongst Arsenal fans.
