Getting Beckham is a huge signing well done
Tenerife Sign Gallas
CD Tenerife have confirmed that they have signed former France international William Gallas on a free transfer. The defender joins the newly-promoted side on a one-year deal.
Gallas has also played for Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal, the big three in London, in his long career. He caused friction in North London when he transferred from Arsenal to their rivals Spurs on a free transfer. Before that he'd played for Chelsea, London's other big club. He started his career in France, with SM Caen, before he signed for French giants Marseille in 1997. Then came his move to England, where he stayed until this summer, when his contract with Tottenham expired.
He is said to be excited about the challenge in front of him in Tenerife, who not too longer were in the Liga BBVA facing sides like Barcelona and Real Madrid. They went down to the third division with two relegations in as many years. Since Real Madrid legend Raul has come in, however, it has been good times all the way for the team from the Canary Islands. They won promotion last season, into the Liga Adelante, attracting players to the calibre of David Beckham and William Gallas to the Estadio Heliodoro Rodríguez López. Gallas has also said that the prospect of working with a legend like Raul will be the pinnacle of his career, and he hopes to be given a coaching role when he finishes his career.
Gallas will be on £2.5k per week, which is the same as Tenerife's other big name signing, David Beckham. These two signings have singlehandedly boosted the club's financial situation, with shirt sales shooting through the roof.
Gallas will be a great signing for you Pauker with the experience he can bring to the team. With him not being on very high wages too it is an even bigger boost. Signing David Beckham...unbelievable!
