Is Laurent Koscielny ahead of schedule…

We need to be patient with him because the injury was an important injury. It’s clear that it’s very important to stay with us, working here and showing us that he wants to help us.

It’s difficult to know. You look at this morning, he’s running, he’s working on the pitch. The progress is very good progress.
