Ian Wright has slammed Laurent Koscielny over the “disrespect” he has shown to Arsenal over the way he revealed his move to Bordeaux.
His unveiling video also angered some Gunners fans – and former striker Wright – after he took off an Arsenal shirt to reveal a Bordeaux strip underneath.
“This hurts,” Wright wrote on Twitter. “The level of disrespect. You should be ashamed for the way you’ve left the club after 9 years!
“Got what you wanted and still trying to have a dig. Hope it’s worth it in the long run.”
In another tweet, Wright added: “So unnecessary. 9 years and you do this…makes no sense.”

Following the move, Koscielny took to Instagram to thank Arsenal fans: “After nine years spent at Arsenal, I took the decision to leave. I have spent wonderful years with this club, nine years during which I learned, evolved, grew up.
“This experience made me the player I am today. My decision to leave has been discussed for months with my club, my team-mates, my coach, and it has been a well-thought decision.
“I see this departure like a new turning point in my life as a player but also in in my life as a man and a family man.
“However I hope you understand, and in any case I cannot be thankful enough for these years past at Arsenal. I am aware of everything that the club and you supporters have brought to me.
“But it is time for me to go home so today my will is to join the @girondins (Bordeaux). This is a new challenge that I count on taking with determination.”
