Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Koscielny ‘should be ashamed’

Ian Wright says former Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny ‘should be ashamed’ after forcing through a move to Bordeaux.

The 33-year-old refused to join up with Unai Emery’s squad for their pre-season tour of the US this summer, with the defender requesting to leave the club to return to his native France.

Koscielny’s stance ultimately saw Arsenal allow the centre-back to leave for Bordeaux in a £4.6m deal, but the Frenchman’s departure has caused a further stir following his unveiling at the Ligue 1 side.

In a post on social media, Koscielny removes an Arsenal shirt to reveal his new team’s colours underneath, with former Gunner’s star Wright saying that the defender has disrespected the club despite nine years at the Emirates.

“This hurts,” Wright wrote on twitter.

“The level of disrespect. You should be ashamed for the way you’ve left the club after 9 years!

“[You] got what you wanted and [you’re] still trying to have a dig.

“Hope it’s worth it in the long run.”
