Arsenal legend Ian Wright has slammed French defender Laurent Koscielny over his controversial move to Bordeaux FC in France.

Laurent Koscielny completed his transfer from Arsenal to Bordeaux on Tuesday in a deal reported to be around €5m.

The French centre back had one year left on his Arsenal contract before his exit.

He was unveiled as a new signing at Bordeaux on Tuesday but Arsenal legend Ian Wright was not cool with the video made to confirm his transfer and that led to the former Arsenal striker lashing out to show his disgust at the unveiling video via his official Twitter page.

Laurent Koscielny has already broken his silence on the controversial move back to France.

According to him, he had been in discussion with the club over the possibility of leaving this summer.

Several Arsenal fans are angry with Laurent Koscielny over the manner of his exit from the club.

He refused to travel with the rest of the Arsenal squad on their preseason tour of the United States (US).

Despite his refusal to travel to the US, Arsenal manager Unai Emery was keen for him to stay at the club.

Laurent Koscielny made over 300 appearances for Arsenal during his nine-year stay in North London.
