Arsenal Defender Koscielny Retires From France After Criticizing France Manager by myfootballface: 11:31am On Oct 15, 2018
France and Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has retired from international duty after criticising manager Didier Deschamps for his treatment while recovering from injury.

The defender ruptured an Achilles in the Europa League semi-final in May and missed out on France's World Cup-winning campaign in Russia.
Koscielny, 33, said "lots of people disappointed him" during his lay-off.

"It feels like a hit on the back of the head," he said.
"When you are in good form, you have lots of friends. When you are injured... after a certain period of time, you are forgotten about.

"He [Deschamps] called me once for my birthday in September. Otherwise, no. Lots of people disappointed me. Not only the coach."
Koscielny announced last year that he intended to retire from international football after the World Cup and said missing out on the tournament did not change his mind.

But he also said his absence in Russia this summer will remain "a dark step" in his career.
He made 51 appearances for France, making his debut in November 2011, and took part in the European Championships in 2012 and 2016, as well as the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

"The injury is one thing, the victory of the World Cup is another," Koscielny said. "I think the victory certainly made me much more psychologically hurt than my injury.
"I think I gave the France team what I could. For me, my injury has not changed anything. The Blues are over, after that, I will always be a supporter of the French team but what is certain is that I will not put on the blue jersey.

"I have a new state of mind, there will be the Laurent before and the Laurent after injury. I want to continue to Arsenal, I want to return quickly. I want to fight."
His last appearance for France was in March in a 3-1 friendly victory over Russia.

This is a sad but true reality about life. Because he couldn't make the world cup, therefore he's angry the team could succeed without him. It's sad but I see this everytime. It's either we succeed together or we both fail together grin Psychologists in the house what is the term for this? See my sig...

Well it's hard to compete for a spot on French team nowadays especially against Africans who swam to France and who can run tirelessly for 3 hours without getting tired. Did u see how they pounded Croatia in the second half

if he were a part of the world cup squad, maybe France would not have won. he should just smile and praise the team. that's it.

That's not what he said.

He said two different things:

1. He is angry with people who abandoned him

2. He is personally sad that he wasn't able to play in the world cup Victory

He is currently injured and could not have played a part even if he was picked.

I bet if someone slaps you physically now, you won't do much except walk away and sulk, but because you can hide behind an online pseudonym, suddenly you've become Amokachi the bull, butting your horn both were it's necessary and where it isn't. Be delivered from cyberbullying sir

Why is it that when someone comments or quote bluntly, it's referred to cyber bullying? Anyway, I slap people, it's not the opposite.. just to let you know

He doesn't have a world cup medal, I feel his pain. Anyway wise choice because he has more chances of getting regular playing time at Arsenal than his country who's 2nd 11 is another country's best, so he should just totally commit to Arsenal.

Google the definition of cyberbullying. Then read your post again. Don't comment before you think
