Girondins de Bordeaux: Gérard Lopez confirms the future departure of Laurent Koscielny


The Girondins wish to get rid of Laurent Koscielny, which Gérard Lopez confirms. The club boss even speaks of a departure in the coming days …

The Laurent Koscielny file takes a new turn. In an interview with South West this Wednesday evening, the president of the Girondins de Bordeaux, Gérard Lopez, announced the future departure of the French central defender. The club no longer relies on him at all and wants to find a solution for an early departure. Negotiations have even already started according to the comments made.

“We do not attack the player or the person. But it is known that Laurent will not finish the season with us and that he will leave the club in January. I think he can still play soccer so if we can help him play again he will leave as a player. He has this right to retrain too, perhaps later. There is a range of possibilities, they are all on the table ”, warns the manager.

Bordeaux no longer wants Koscielny

Koscielny’s future seems clear. It is written far from the Girondins de Bordeaux. It must be said that the 36-year-old still weighs heavily in the club’s finances. His contract ends next June, but a two-season extension option is possible in the event of a green light from both parties. Only, with an annual salary of 3 M €, the former Gunner will not see his option be activated.

Since the start of the transfer window, the French international (51 selections, 1 goal) has integrated a list of 6 players whom the club wishes to get rid of as a priority. We are therefore moving towards an amicable termination rather than a transfer. Bordeaux even already has his idea to replace him in the person of Alvaro Gonzalez. It remains to be seen whether the Spaniard will be hot to join a Ligue 1 club other than OM …
