Arsenal star wants his own song

Laurent Koscielny can't understand why Arsenal fans don't have a specific song for him and believes things would be different if he was as good looking as teammate Olivier Giroud.

However, the Gunners star did say he wanted a song sung about him by the Emirates Stadium faithful before he leaves the club.

"I don’t know!" was his response when asked why he thought the Arsenal fans had not made up a song about him in an official Arsenal magazine interview.

"Maybe I need to have Olivier’s nose or his hair cut! Or maybe they don’t like me (he laughs again). Before I retire, I am hoping to have my own song!"

It is something of a surprise that Gunners supporters are yet to compose a chant for the Frenchman, as he has been a crucial member of their starting XI for some time now.

Koscielny's partnership with Per Mertesacker at the heart of the Arsenal defence has been the best in the Premier League for nearly a year and is a big reason for Arsene Wenger's side being just a point behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

With the title race so close going into the last couple of months of the season, mental toughness is going to be essential to getting the winners' name on the trophy come May and the France international believes he has seen the level necessary among his teammates.

"We can’t be 100 per cent all the time in the way we play. So there will be some moments in some games where we lack quality, where it will be more difficult, where it won’t be pretty football but we stay strong, we graft and we never give up," he added.

"Mentally, we are stronger than ever. We’ve won some games this season that we would have never won last season."

Arsenal's next match is a tricky fixture away from home against Stoke City in the Premier League, but they know they will have to claim a win as a daunting run of fixtures awaits them after the Britannia Stadium encounter.

The following six matches go as so: Everton at home in the FA Cup, Bayern Munich away in the Champions League, Tottenham Hotspur away in the league, Chelsea away in the league, Manchester City at home in the league and Everton away in the league.

Arsenal are going to need a lot more than mental toughness.
