‘Needs to be sold’ – Arsenal fans on Twitter react to Wenger’s update on major blow

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to Arsene Wenger’s update on Laurent Koscielny, who was stretchered off after just 12 minutes against Atletico Madrid last night. The French centre-back has a history of problems with his Achilles’ tendons and has previously had injections into them just to feature.

The sight of seeing a teammate stretchered off the pitch in excruciating pain is sure to affect you mentally whilst playing football, but for it to happen to your club captain in a European semi-final is really tough. That’s what the Arsenal players were faced with when they lost Laurent Koscielny to a suspected ruptured Achilles last night at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid last night as they bowed out of the Europa League to a Diego Costa goal.

Despite the loss, the fans concerns for Koscielny has been one of the main talking points. The 32-year-old will have to undergo scans to find out the severity of the injury, although it looks like his season is over and his World Cup chances are near zero. Arsenal will be gutted to have lost their captain and star defender in the loss, although with just three games remaining in their season, the Gunners will be keen to just get into pre-season under a new manager and hopefully with Koscielny back fit and playing soon.
