Former Arsenal hero: 'Steve Bould kicked my two teeth out'

Former Arsenal hero Alan Smith has been recounting a painful experience.

Reacting to Laurent Koscielny being kicked in the face by Pierre Webo, Sky commentator Alan Smith had a similar experience of his own to recount.

"I lost two teeth like that. It was a painful experience, I went up for a high ball and collided. I tell can you who did it, it was Steve Bould.

"I was playing for Leicester, he was playing for Stoke."


Smith and Bould both played for their respective clubs in the mid-80s, before becoming teammates at Arsenal.

Bould became an integral part of the club's defence under George Graham, and is currently Arsene Wenger's assistant manager at the club.

Smith scored the famous UEFA Cup Winners Cup winning goal against Parma back in 1994.
