Laurent Koscielny is set to return to the Arsenal squad for the clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday after he served a one game suspension for the professional foul he committed against Manchester City.
Speaking to Arsenal player, Koscielny said about Jack Wilshere
He’s young, he has a long time to play at the high level for Arsenal so I think it is good for this club because he has a lot of top quality and he can be a big player in here.
I think he’s a leader. I said to him next time he will be the captain of Arsenal. He has everything to be a big man for Arsenal and he will be.
Asked about his sending off against Manchester City, Kos replied
When you take a red card you are disappointed because you leave your teammates 10 against 11 and it was a big game. And after ten minutes the game was finished because when you play against Manchester City it was very difficult. It’s the life, we managed to keep the head high and continue to work and to fight for finishing in the fourth place.
January, February, it was a big month. We play Manchester City, Chelsea, after Liverpool. I think if we do a good game at Chelsea, it will be good for us to keep the team strong and it will be very important to come back for Chelsea, so we must go to Chelsea for a win.
