BBC pundit: This Euro 2016 star has grown into a leader at Arsenal


Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy says defender Laurent Koscielny has become a key figure for France and Arsenal.

It was the summer of 2010 when a little-known Frenchman made a move from Lorient to Arsenal and after struggling to settle down at the Emirates he slowly became a leader in the Arsenal defence.

He is a solid regular for both Arsene Wenger and Didier Deschamps and helped the French national team keep two clean sheets in three games so far at Euro 2016.

"He's grown into a leader," Murphy told BBC Sport.

"When he first came he didn't have the confidence he possesses now. He's a good talker and organiser now."
