Koscielny was injured again
Laurent Koscielny’s return to big football could be postponed after he was injured again, playing for the second team.
The 33-year-old defender returned on the football field last week, having played the whole match for the Gunners’ U23 team against Derby (0:5). It seemed that Laurent came close to the appearance for the first team.
But now the captain will have to wait. Laurent played again for Arsenal U23, but in the 85th minute of the match against the 2nd Portsmouth squad he was injured and forced to leave Fratton Park.
It is alarming that Koscielny received this damage without any visible contact with any of the opposing players. The doctors will have to diagnose whether this is a new injury or a relapse.
