Koscielny eases Arsenal fears after knee injury

Thursday 11 October 2012

Arsenal have confirmed that central defender Laurent Koscielny has not suffered a serious knee injury after the 27-year-old was forced out of France’s training session following a clash with Franck Ribery.

The news alarmed Gunners fans who have seen the likes of Robin van Persie, Thomas Vermaelen, Jack Wilshere and Toms Rosicky all suffer long-term injuries on international duty.


However, in a statement on Arsenal.com, the Gunners reassured their fans that Koscielny’s knock was minor.


The statement read: “After receiving a knock on his right knee at the end of the training session in Clairefontaine on Wednesday afternoon, Laurent Koscielny passed a very reassuring medical exam in the evening.


The defender will take part in training on Thursday at 6.30pm at the Stade de France after the manager and captain’s press conference.


Koscielny has been in and out of the Gunners side this term after suffering an injury in pre-season that ruled him out of the opening match of the Premier League. Since then, the Frenchman has seen Per Mertesacker usurp him as the Gunners’ first-choice central defender to partner captain Vermaelen, particularly after Koscielny’s error-strewn performance in the Gunners’ only defeat of the season so far at home to Chelsea.
