Devastated French defender Laurent Koscielny ruled out of World Cup

Posted May 09, 2018

Do you think whoever replaces Wenger at Arsenal will keep Ozil at the club?

The centre back was withdrawn in the 12th minute of the semi-final second leg last Thursday after losing his footing at the Wanda Metropolitano as Arsenal were eliminated from the tournament following a 1-0 defeat in the Spanish capital.

And it seems the initial worries were well founded, with Koscielny forced to undergo surgery earlier today to fix his achilles tendon. "He will miss the World Cup. you will not see him until December at best". He gave me, a foreign manager, a chance when no one knew me here.

While we know that Wenger will be a pundit for the World Cup in Russian Federation over the summer, there hasn't been any indication as to what will follow.

According to The Sun, a number of Arsenal's senior players are unhappy with how many times the midfielder has declared himself unavailable for matches this season.

Wenger will take charge of his penultimate game as Arsenal manager tonight (9.45pm) against Leicester City, with the final match of his near-22 years in charge coming on Sunday against Huddersfield Town. "People want hope and they need to prepare for the next season", he said of the search for a new coach. "He has gone through a hard patch now because he is always in and out but once he is back on a consistent way he will have a huge influence".

"For me these football players have a special quality, not only on the pitch but off the pitch". "Even at half-time in Madrid, he had that problem".

"That's what happened. It was a game enjoyable to play and he wanted to play, but at the moment he is injured". More than I expected. "I want to work well here until the last day of my contract and then (I will) rest a little bit and think about where I will go from there". I have huge experience in management.
