Ian Wright blasts ex-Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny over ‘shameful’ transfer video

Posted on


Ex Arsenal striker Ian Wright launched a scathing attack on Laurent Koscielny after the centre-back’s £4.6m move to Bordeaux was finally confirmed on Tuesday.

Koscielny first made it known he wanted to leave the club when he refused to travel on the Gunners’ pre-season tour to USA last month.

Since then he has been desperately pushing for a move, even trying to leave on a free transfer, before eventually getting his wish when Arsenal agreed a fee with Bordeaux.

The French club announced the new signing with a video of Koscielny taking off an Arsenal shirt to reveal a Bordeaux shirt underneath, and this in particular appears to have angered Wright.

Posting on his personal Twitter account the BBC and ITV pundit attached a link to the video and said: “This hurts. The level of disrespect. You should be ashamed for the way you’ve left the club after 9 years! Got what you wanted and still trying to have a dig. Hope it’s worth it in the long run.”

Both Arsenal supporters and fans of other clubs seemed to be in agreement with Wright, with one responding: “It’s actually absurd to be honest. Imagine spending 9 years of your career at a club, as captain as well, to go and do that. Ridiculous.”

Koscielny looks to have tarnished his reputation amongst Arsenal fans despite making 353 appearances over nine seasons, captaining the club and winning three FA Cups during his spell at the Emirates.

Arsenal will now turn their attentions towards finding a replacement for the Frenchman before the end of the transfer window, with Juventus ‘ Daniele Rugani and Dayot Upamecano of RB Leipzig among the potential targets.
