Laurent Koscielny issues an update for Arsenal fans after his serious injury setback

Laurent Koscielny has taken to social media to vow that he will come back stronger after the Arsenal defender’s Achilles injury.

The France international has been ruled out action for six months after having to undergo surgery to correct a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered during Arsenal’s loss to Atletico Madrid last week.

The news comes as a huge blow to the defender, who will now also miss the World Cup due to the problem.

However, the defender has promised Arsenal fans that he will fight to come back stronger than ever as he looks to make his return to action for the first team next season.

Koscielny posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “I would like to thank you for all the messages received further to my injury.

“The operation went well, it’s a new step that begins for me …

“I’m determined to fight not only for myself but also for my family, my friends and all the people who support me … See you soon lolo 💪🏼.”

Arsenal are going to end their season with a trip to Huddersfield Town on Sunday in what will be Arsene Wenger’s final game in charge of the north London club.

The Gunners are yet to announce who will be taking over from Wenger at The Emirates ahead of next season.

Arsenal, who won the FA Cup under Wenger last term, are set to miss out on a place in the Champions League next season for the second campaign running.
