Martin Keown is impressed with Laurent Kosciely and Thomas Vermaelen
Arsenal legend Martin Keown hailed the Gunners’ defensive pairing of Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen.
The former Gunners defender believes that the Frenchman’s partnership with the Belgium star has been working well and they compliment each other.
“I think Koscielny is an outstanding player,” Keown told Arsenal.com. “He is very nimble on his feet and defensively in a one v one I think he is the best we have.
“Thomas Vermaelen is very powerful and attacks the ball brilliantly alongside him, so I think those two together look like a formidable pair.
“So it is good news that Koscielny has signed a new contract.”
