LONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 11Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel for the club’s pre-season tour in the United States.

The Gunners released a statement on Thursday highlighting their disappointment at the 33-year-old Frenchman, who has been at the club since 2010.

“Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour,” said Arsenal.

“We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions.

“We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time.”
