Former Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny finally apologises to fans for ‘disgusting’ Bordeaux announcement video

Laurent Koscielny has finally apologised to Arsenal fans for his Bordeaux announcement video that saw him ‘disrespect’ the Gunners shirt… a whole year after it happened.

The centre-back angered supporters by taking off a Gunners jersey and throwing it to the floor, revealing a Bordeaux shirt underneath as he was unveiled at his new club.

Koscielny was blasted for his ‘disgusting’ and ‘disrespectful’ Bordeaux reveal video

Koscielny endured a bitter departure from the Emirates Stadium last summer, as he went on strike to force his way out after falling out with then-manager Unai Emery.

The Frenchman had spent nine years as an Arsenal player, wearing the captain’s armband for the latter of them, but he left the north London club in disgrace and then rubbed their noses in it with his Bordeaux announcement video.

It did not go down well with Gooners, and even a number of Arsenal legends hit back at Koscielny.

David Seaman branded him a ‘disgrace’ and told talkSPORT he was ‘disgusted’ by the video, while Ian Wright was also appalled by the defender’s behaviour.

But, reflecting on his Arsenal exit in a recent interview, Koscielny has now said sorry to Gunners supporters.

Speaking with the local media in France, he said: “I had nine incredible years there, lots of memories with this club.

“I know that my announcement video at Bordeaux caused a bit of a stir, I want to apologise to the fans for that.

“I didn’t expect it to affect them in the way that it did.”

Better late than never, I suppose, but Arsenal fans have been burned by their captains in the past, and they are not quick to forgive.
