Unai Emery says Laurent Koscielny has given Arsenal a huge boost after returning to training just THREE MONTHS after an Achilles operation.
Arsenal captain Koscielny missed France’s World Cup triumph after rupturing his Achilles in the Europa League semi final at Atletico Madrid in May.
But there are pictures of Koscielny returning to the training ground this week although he has yet to begin full training but is already back and running.
Gunners boss Emery said: “He’s working very hard. First he was in France. He came back to us last Sunday.
"We are happy to have him here with us, because he’s our captain and he’s showing us his spirit to stay with us.
“We need to be patient with him because the injury was an important injury. It’s clear that it’s very important to stay with us, working here and showing us that he wants to help us.
“It’s difficult to know (when he can play). You look at this morning, he’s running, he’s working on the pitch. The progress is very good progress.”
