Soccer – Koscielny vows to play through the pain

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny plans to continue playing for as long as possible even though he is having to contend with ongoing Achilles problems. The 32-year-old Frenchman was diagnosed with chronic tendinitis in both feet by the French Football Federation three years ago. Koscielny, whose current Gunners contract expires at the end of the 2019/20 campaign, said: "I don't think about if I will stop in one year or two years. "I manage myself and do everything with my physio, with everyone who can help me, to lower the pain on my Achilles." Arsenal can be backed at 20/21 with bet365 to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season and at 6/1 to win the Europa League.
