It’s fair to say that Laurent Koscielny hasn’t covered himself in glory this summer as he has ended his stint with Arsenal in disappointing fashion.
The 33-year-old joined the Gunners in 2010 and went on to make over 350 appearances for the club as he established himself as a stalwart at the back.
However, he faced a backlash earlier this summer after refusing to travel with the squad on their pre-season tour, as confirmed by the club’s site at the time, as he angled for an exit from the Emirates ahead of the new season.
This hurts. The level of disrespect 😤😤 You should be ashamed for the way you've left the club after 9 years! Got what you wanted and still trying to have a dig 👋🏾👋🏾👋🏾 Hope it's worth it in the long run. https://t.co/7ShuTVss2u— Ian Wright (@IanWright0) August 6, 2019
