Why Koscielny left Arsenal

KOSCIELNY FINALLY APOLOGISES FOR THAT ANNOUNCEMENT CLIP

Former Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has opened up on his controversial exit video that left many Arsenal fans furious last year.

The announcement clip showed the defender removing his Arsenal shirt to reveal a Bordeaux one underneath, and was branded disrespectful by a number of ex-Arsenal stars.

With a year left on his contract, Koscielny opted to force through a return to his native France, bringing his nine-year stay at the club to a rather bitter end.

However the defender has now apologised for the now infamous video. Speaking with the local media in France, he said: “I had nine incredible years there, lots of memories with this club.

“I know that my announcement video at Bordeaux caused a bit of a stir, I want to apologise to the fans for that.

I didn’t expect it to affect them in the way that it did.”
