Koscielny: I don’t need to join twitter
Laurent Koscielny may like to take full responsibility when the Gunners are defending, but when it comes to social networking, the Frenchman says he will leave it to his teammates.
Nearly the entire Arsenal squad – from senior players Robin van Persie and Thomas Vermaelen to youngsters Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – have been working their finger tips off the pitch with an account on the internet’s fastest growing trend, but the defender is choosing not to jump in.
‘Tweeting’ has become a form of direct communication between players and the public, but it has also been the source of controversy in recent times with the talkative Jack Wilshere and Emmanuel Frimpong at the center of incidents in recent times.
And after considering all that, Laurent Koscielny feels he is not in the need to join the twitter buzz.
“I think I will never join twitter. I don’t know how to use it very well and also, I don’t need to be on there.” Koscielny responded when asked
Perhaps Koscienly stays off twitter to focus more on improving his game when off the pitch, and the former Lorient defender admits the toughest opponent he has faced since his move to English football is Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.
“I think my toughest opponent is Drogba, because he is very strong. He is good in the air and has the ability to score a lot of goals. I see him as a complete striker” he said.
