Koscielny, peace and goodbye with Arsenal is a Bordeaux player
After a rather eventful summer, Koscielny returns to France after nine years of Arsenal. Some disagreements, a period outside the squad, then the peace that coincides with the farewell.
Peace and farewell with Arsenal. Laurent Koscielny returns to Ligue 1: he is officially a Bordeuax player. Both companies, in different ways, through their social channels have confirmed the transaction which should be around, as reported by the Telegraph, around five million euros. The French company has already posted the news on its twitter profile.
GOODBYE The defender ended his experience with the Arsenal shirt after nine years: 353 appearances enriched by the victories of the 3 FA Cup. And the gunners greeted him like this
Excluding the emotional video, rather abrupt separation. The new purchase of Bordeaux would have expired on a contract and therefore the London company preferred to close for its transfer in order to find a solution that would satisfy everyone.
HANDLED Net of parting, the last days with Arsenal have not been lived exactly with serenity: Koscielny had already asked the gunners to be sold since early July, but the company was not of the same opinion. The no had not gone down to the defender who first refused to leave with the team for the retirement, then he also posted a photo as a photo of his Instagram in which it was not clear if he was wearing or was taking off the captain's armband.
PUNISHED To resolve the matter Arsenal had directly thought about it, which after a press release written to stigmatize the player's behavior, had deprived him of the band. And then made to train with the Academy. In short, open war. The only glimpse was to find someone who would take a check out of ten million euros. Bordeaux thought about it and about half of it was enough.
