Laurent Koscielny ruptured his Achilles in Thursday’s defeat to Atletico Madrid, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed.
Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has ruptured his Achilles and will not play again “before December”, according to departing Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
The France international sustained the injury in the early stages of their Europa League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano and his country’s football federation confirmed on Friday he would miss the World Cup.
And Wenger fears the 32-year-old will miss the first three months of next season as well.
Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Leicester City, he told a news conference: “He is of course devastated because of course he has surgery, that means six months out. You will not see him again before December certainly.”
