Arsenal star Laurent Koscielny pictured after skull injury.
Arsenal centre back Laurent Koscielny saw the rough side of football in the north London club’s UEFA Champions League playoff round match against Fenerbahce.
The Gunners defender was kicked in the face by Pierre Webo, who was playing up front for the Turkish side, as he attempted to control the ball, and was immediately substituted – leading to a reshuffle in the Arsenal defence.
Naturally, manager Arsene Wenger was not elated.
“I was not happy with the kick because I feel always that you can ease a bit off. Only the player in the end will know what he did,” said Wenger after the game to the BBC.
“Koscielny has opened very deeply the skull. We are concerned because we had to send him to hospital to see if he has not broken a bone. We are waiting for him to come back now, for information to find out if he can fly home with us.”
However, according to Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud, Koscielny is in fine shape.
He posted a picture to social network Instagram of the his fellow France international looking in fine fettle… besides the stitches.
