Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter give his reaction to Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny refusing to travel with the squad to the USA for the club’s pre-season tour.

As announced on Arsenal’s official website, the 33-year-old central defender has refused to be part of Unai Emery’s squad for their pre-season trip to the US.

The Gunners have also stated that they hope to resolve the matter, and former Tottenham Hotspur striker Lineker has given his take on the situation on Twitter, criticising the French defender and Arsenal captain.

Laurent Koscielny exit?

Koscielny is the Arsenal captain, and the Frenchman refusing to turn up for the Gunners’ US tour suggests that he does not plan to be at the Emirates Stadium next season.

If the 33-year-old wants to leave Arsenal, then the North London outfit should just sell him, as he is past his best anyway and also had some injury issues.

Arsenal need to look to the future and have players in their squad who want to play for the North London outfit.
