It be a shame if Koscielny’s days at Arsenal are over from this terrible injury. It seems like he didn’t have a particularly great season last year (although let’s be honest, no one did lol), but whenever he moves on, or retires soon, I’ll always think of him fondly and stuck around when things got really bad during that period without a trophy. Sure he was part of that horrible mix up at the back when we lost to Birmingham in the cup. But he really redeemed himself after that.
Not only was he one of the important goal scorers in the Cup Final of 2014, but two or three occasions he scored the decisive winner on the final day of League campaigns against West Brom and Newcastle securing Champions League Football the following seasons.
Part of me kinda wants to keep him for two more years, so he reaches a decade at the club, but at the same time, we can’t really hang onto players who fitness wise are struggling at this part of their career unfortunately. Arsenal are somewhat damned if we do, damned it we don’t use him when he’s back, as the defense is an absolute mess right now anyways.
