Former Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has apologised to Arsenal fans for the way he left the club and how he was announced as a Bordeaux player.
The French defender left the club after 9years.
He refused to travel with the team to their pre-season tour in the US before leaving.
He was announced at Bordeaux with a video clip of him wearing an Arsenal jersey and then removing it to reveal Bordeaux jersey much to the dismay of the Gunners fan.
“I had 9 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.”
