Wenger: Koscielny Like Cannavaro

share on:

Arsene Wenger has stated the first time he saw Laurent Koscielny play for Lorient he looked like Cannavaro.

Arsenal looked to be taking a gamble when they signed Koscielny in 2010 for £9.7 million.

However, Koscielny has been exceptional, featuring in over 200 matches and impressing this season.

“I saw him first playing on TV for Lorient and straight away I was struck by his quality, focus, mobility and pace,” Wenger told reporters. “He was a bit like [Fabio] Cannavaro.

“Not too tall, but very mobile, read the game very well and had great interception qualities.

“I was told by a friend of mine who was his coach a few years earlier that he was a quality player, so I kept an eye on him.”
