Arsenal outcast Koscielny admits he's missing Wenger

Dumped Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny admits he's missing former manager Arsene Wenger.

Koscielny has told team-mates that his ongoing dispute with the club would have never happened if Wenger was still in charge, says the Mirror.

Koscielny has been trying to force a move away from the Gunners following a contract disagreement and even refused to join the team for their pre-season tour in the USA.

The France international has been telling people around Colney training ground that his standoff with the club would have never happened if Wenger was still at the helm.

The centre-back has one year left on his £100,000-a-week contract and had hoped for an extension but the defender couldn't reach an agreement with the north London club and went on strike.
