Reports are out claiming that Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny believes that the spirit of the club has changed a lot since he first arrived in 2010.
The 30-year-old French international came to the Emirates Stadium from Ligue 1 club Lorient at the time when the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri, Andrey Arshavin and Robin van Persie were still present at the club.
When asked about what has changed at the club in the last five years, the France international told Arsenal’s official website: “The spirit is different. A lot of players have changed. There are not many left from 2010.
“That’s the life of a football club. The manager and the players change but only the club remains. There is a new philosophy.
“We have signed some very technical players from Spain or Spanish-speaking players like Nacho, Santi, Alexis and even Hector. That was a turning point. Then the Germans came too. And the boss has managed to gel everybody together. We have been playing together for a few years now.”
