Arsene Wenger has confirmed what the latest update is, regarding the fitness of Laurent Koscielny after the clash with AC Milan on Thursday.

The Gunners have endured their troubles this season with a place in the top four of the Premier League looking increasingly unlikely to be secured.

What has also continued to interrupt Arsenal’s momentum is frequent injuries to key players are crucial periods in the season.

And the latest man to succumb to a fitness concern was Laurent Koscielny who limped off after only 11 minutes in the clash against AC Milan on Thursday.

The Gunners did manage to win 3-1 and clinch a spot in the semi-final of the Europa League but concerns have remained over the fitness of the French defender.

According to Wenger though, Koscielny does not appear to have suffered a serious problem which would have kept him on the sidelines again.

“He got a kick on his back,” said Arsene Wenger. “We don’t think it’s bad but he cramped up and he couldn’t go on.” the Arsenal boss said after the game on Thursday night
