KOSCIELNY FINALLY APOLOGISES FOR THAT ANNOUNCEMENT CLIP
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.”
