Laurent Koscielny's Bordeaux Announcement Video Branded 'Disrespectful'

Laurent Koscielny's Bordeaux announcement video has caused a stir online, with some Arsenal supporters deeming it to be 'disrespectful'.

The 33-year old has left Arsenal after nine years of service, getting his desired move back to his native France in a £4.6 million switch.


Koscielny, who was Arsenal captain, left on bad terms after refusing to travel to the United States as part of the club's pre-season tour and the signing announcement video has only furthered angered Gooners.

It sees the France international wearing last season's Arsenal shirt, which he then takes off to reveal a Bordeaux top underneath.

Despite his departure - and this subsequent video - leaving a sour taste for Arsenal supporters, Koscielny did express gratitude to the club and the fans in a post on Instagram.

His exit means that no player from Arsenal's entire 2010/11 squad remains at the Emirates, while Unai Emery must now decide on a new player to wear the armband for the Europa League finalists.
