Mesut Ozil's Arsenal Teammates Frustrated at Star's Level of Commitment

Laurent Koscielny

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that defender Laurent Koscielny is set to be sidelined for at least six months after rupturing an achilles during a Europa League clash.

Wenger didn't reveal who or where, and says he will not consider any role until after the season ends.

The 68-year-old takes the Gunners to Leicester on Wednesday evening in the Premier League fixture before his final match as manager on Sunday at Huddersfield. My brain demands work and is active.

The former Dortmund man has now scored seven league goals at the Emirates this term; the most of any Arsenal player in their first seven home appearances in the Premier League.

Koscielny injury means Arsenal will now need to sign a centre-back during the summer, who will replace the Arsenal captain in the middle of the defence. "Try and support people when they suffer".

Warnock's Cardiff in pole position for Premier League place
Cardiff's Neil Warnock says the reason his side were able to gain promotion to the Premier League was due to his grandson. A legitimate chance came in the 19th minute for the hosts as midfielder Junior Hoilett narrowly missed a curling effort.

"There is huge potential in there and good spirit. We need two, three additions and this team will compete for the championship next year".

He said: "I hope for them they can not regret their choice because he has had a massive impact as manager of Arsenal for 22 years".

"It means he will be out for six months". He gave me, a foreign manager, a chance when no one knew me here.

"I am not involved any more in negotiations but of course I'm still in touch with Jack". I don't analyse anything [relating to his next job], I want to work well until the end of my contract.

While we know that Wenger will be a pundit for the World Cup in Russian Federation over the summer, there hasn't been any indication as to what will follow.
