Arsenal fans divide over how Koscielny should be remembered

Arsenal fans on Twitter are divided on the legacy of Laurent Koscielny as the French defender prepares to play what could very well be his last game for the Gunners.

The experienced centre-back still has one year left on his contract but could depart the Emirates this summer with talks over a new deal yet to begin, according to L’equipe.

Now 34, Koscielny was snapped up by Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2010 and has gone on to make 352 Arsenal appearances, while also captaining the side permanently following Per Mertesacker’s retirement last summer.

The former Lorient defender will be hoping to end his distinguished Arsenal career on a high as the Gunners prepare to face Chelsea in the Europa League final on May 29 in Baku.

Koscielny missed the first half of the season due to a ruptured achilles tendon but has returned to consideration in the second half of the campaign making 29 appearances in all competitions under Unai Emery.

It remains to be seen if the European showpiece in Baku will be the France international’s final match for Arsenal, but either way Gunners supporters are split on how the defender should be remembered.
