Laurent Koscielny refuses to attend pre-season camp, Arsenal issue statement

Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny is facing a disciplinary action after he refused to travel with the squad for their pre-season tour.

The Frenchman is desperate to leave the club and announced on Thursday that he would not be joining the rest of the squad for pre-season.

The 33-year-old wants to return to France and has been linked with a move to Bordeaux.

Here is a statement by the club:

Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour.

We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions.

We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time.
