Why I left Arsenal - Laurent Koscielny

Former Arsenal skipper and Bordeaux new signing Laurent Koscielny have revealed why he has to leave the club after 9 years of being there.

Koscielny completed his move to the Ligue 1 side on Tuesday after both clubs agreed on a fee.

We could also recall that Koscielny didn't travel with the squad for pre-season due to some unrevealed problem. However, the defender has now revealed why he had to leave the club.

'As you know I engaged with Bordeaux. After nine years spent at Arsenal, I took the decision to leave,' Koscielny wrote on an Instagram post

'I have spent wonderful years with this club, nine years during which I learned, evolved, grew up.'

'This experience made me the player I am today. My decision to leave has been discussed for months with my club, my teammates, my coach, and it has been a well thought decision.'

I see this departure like a new turning point in my life as a player but also in my life as a man and a family man.'

'However, I hope you understand, and in case I cannot be thankful enough for these years past at Arsenal.'

'I am aware of everything that the club and you supporters have brought to me. But it is time for me to go home so today my will is to join the Bordeaux.'

'This is a new challenge that I count on taking with determination.'
