William Gallas was so pleased with Tuesday's webchat that he wants to do it again and he has even urged other players to take part.
The Arsenal captain fielded questions from fans all over the world for 70 minutes live via Arsenal.com. The 30-year-old was quizzed on diverse areas of his life such as his relationship with fellow centre back Kolo Toure, his treatment by the media, his favourite restaurant and his favourite fancy dress costume.
"I told them that I would do it for an hour but afterwards I felt it was too short," he told the Arsenal programme. "I told them that I would do it again, no problem. It was fun.
"It's very good to be able to interact with the fans like that, because I know the fans don't have many opportunities to do it, especially those who live abroad.
"There are plenty of Arsenal fans outside of London so I thought it was a good idea, and I hope other players will do it too. It's an important part of our job."
Thanks to EA Sports Fifa 08 for their involvement in William's webchat.
