Laurent Koscielny Sends Emotional Message to Arsenal Fans Following Injury

Laurent Koscielny Sends Emotional Message to Arsenal Fans Following Injury

Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has sent an emotional message to the club’s supporters after it was revealed he’ll be out injured for at least the next six months.

The France international has been a mainstay in the Gunners’ defence this season, and often seen as one of the few centre-backs Arsene Wenger can truly rely on, but it now seems he’ll be spending most of the rest of 2018 on the treatment table.

There was nobody near the 32-year-old when he collapsed in a heap during last Thursday night’s Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid, and it seemed pretty clear almost immediately that the problem was serious.

And it seems the initial worries were well founded, with Koscielny forced to undergo surgery earlier today to repair his achilles tendon.

Complete with his crutches in tow, Koscielny sent supporters this update on his well-being – and it might be enough to make some Arsenal fans break down in tears:

Some onlookers thought that perhaps Kosceilny had played his final match for Arsenal – but do you think we’ll see him in the club’s iconic red shirt again?
