Laurent Koscielny: “I have confidence in Rami.”

Speaking to the press today at Clairefontaine, Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny discussed his budding partnership with Sevilla defender Adil Rami.

On Adil Rami:

We have worked an enormous amount tactically during our time in Austria, in terms of pressing, in terms of distances between each player in terms of setpieces. I have spoken with Adil, our midfielders, with Hugo (Lloris), we are trying to bed him in.

On Rami’s performance against Cameroon:

I can understand his reaction. It was a long time since had been in the French national team, during the match against Cameroon, he was a bit stressed. As I said to him, you have to stay calm, he has had a great season with Sevilla, he is capable of having great matches, it is just a question of being calm and positive. We are here to help him. I believe in him, we are all together.
