GIF It: Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny takes a nasty kick to the head
This kick to the face sustained by Laurent Koscielny was only dampener on a great night for Arsenal as they beat Fenerbahce 0-3 in a Champions League qualifier.
French defender Koscielny was caught by a high boot from Fenerbahce striker Pierre Webo.
He was immediately subbed off after receiving what physio Colin Lewin described as one of the worst cuts he had ever seen. The centre-back left the field after 30 minutes had been played, but was still being stitched up well into the second half.
Compatriot Olivier Giroud later posted a photo of his team-mate with the caption: “Some news from Lolo… He’s ok no worries HE WILL BE BAAACK! #french warrior #kung-fu #stitches.”
