Laurent Koscielny undergoes surgery; out until December 2018

Arsenal captain and French international central defender Laurent Koscielny has undergone successful surgery on his achilles following a terrible injury sustained in last Thursday’s Europa League semi-final clash against Atletico Madrid.

Arsène Wenger confirmed that the procedure had taken place in a press conference this morning:

“He will miss the World Cup. You will not see him again until December earliest. We always try to be positive, but in a general manner we can only support people who are suffering.”
