Laurent Koscielny made his long-awaited comeback from injury in Arsenal’s Europa League win over Qarabag and is now aiming to start a new chapter in his career.
“It was very important for me today,” he told BT Sport.
“It was my last day of rehab, so now I start a new chapter in my career. For me, it is important to enjoy the game with my team-mates, and it didn’t matter about the result, it was just about being on the pitch with my friends. It is difficult being out injured. It was the first big injury of my career and I had to take a long time out, but you learn a lot about yourself and I am very happy. I am focused mentally, and I can smile and enjoy the rest of the season."
