Former Arsenal midfielder defends Koscielny

16 Jul 2019, 08:30

Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has been defended by former teammate Mathieu Flamini following his refusal to travel with the club for the pre-season tour of United States. 

Last week on Thursday, the Gunners announced the Frenchman will not be traveling to the US for the tour as he was keen to stay in England and get his future resolved. According to reports, the Arsenal captain is believed to be angry at a supposed broken promise from the club that would have allowed him to leave for free this summer. And former player Flamini says there can be a ‘positive’ outcome from Laurent’s decision.  

“Lolo, my thoughts and support are with you. First and foremost, I know how committed and true to the Arsenal badge you have been all these years,” he posted on his Instagram. 

“Furthermore, I know how hard it must be for you to face this difficult situation. Emotions run high so sometimes with reflection, one can look at things from a different perspective. Given all of the above, I’m sure a positive solution will be found.”

The 33-year-old has 12 months to run on his deal at the Emirates and the Gunners have set a price tag of around £8.8m for his services.
