Laurent Koscielny is arguably one of the best central-defenders in the world, but he isn’t normally known for his quick feet and goalscoring prowess. That may all change after seeing this clip however, with the Frenchman pulling off some phenomenal tricks before launching a superb rabona into the top corner – with his weak foot too.
The Arsenal man was casually messing around during an open training session on Members’ Day 2015, and was displaying some fancy footwork. He finished it off with a rabona, which shot into the back of the net in real style.
Like a Boss-cielny!

Koscielny was a little known defender when he arrived at the Emirates, having battled his way through the French divisions. He quickly escalated himself once at Arsenal however, and is now one of the game’s top centre-backs.
He is likely to play a huge role in our upcoming season, whether he continues his hugely successful parternship with Per Mertesacker or begins anew with Gabriel Paulista. He struggled with injury last season, but hopefully all that is behind him heading into the 2015/16 campaign.
