Being an Arsenal fans has been tough so far this season. The club has had the hardest opening two fixtures of any club and predictably they’re yet to pick up a single point. The fans believe that they’re lacking a leader and because of that, they can’t wait to get Laurent Koscielny back to fitness.

The 32-year-old centre-back has had the worst luck over the last few months. After rupturing his achilles tendon in the Europa league semi-final against Atletico Madrid he had to watch on from the sidelines as he side crashed out of the competition to the eventual winners, Atletico. Meanwhile, his injury meant he would be unable to compete in the World Cup and he missed his place, and a winners a medal, as France went on to win the tournament.
Now, though, it’s time for Koscielny to try and put his shocking summer behind him and get back to fitness as soon as he can to help his club side. Unai Emery has come in and promised the Frenchman that he will be one of his five captains throughout the season. The Gunners are desperate to get their man back on the pitch with the armband as he’s one of the leaders that they desperately need at The Emirates.
