Arsenal's captain on the night Laurent Koscielny expressed his sheer disappointment as his side were crushed 5-1 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League Round of 16 first-leg.
In his post-match interview via the Daily Star,
“When you can win [there], you need to stay together, defend together with all 11 players and keep this.
Koscielny picked up an injury just after the break and he was replaced by Brazilian defender Gabriel. Within 15 minutes of his substitution, Arsenal conceded three goals and it could have been much worse had goalkeeper David Ospina not made a string of quality saves.
When asked whether his departure was the main cause of Arsenal's capitulation, the Frenchman stated:
