Laurent Koscielny is targeting a return to action within six months following surgery to repair his ruptured Achilles tendon.
The Arsenal centre-back said he felt like he had been tackled by Diego Costa after falling to the turf during the opening minutes of the Europa League semi-final tie in Madrid earlier this month. But in the moments that followed, Koscielny suddenly realised he was all alone and his dreams of playing at the World Cup finals in Russia were over: "My first reaction was to say: 'It's done - my tendon has snapped.' I was screaming on the pitch. I remember hitting my hand on the ground several times. It was an atrocious pain. At that exact moment, I knew that it would be at least six months before I could play again." Former Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger said at the time: "You will not see him now before the beginning of December at least." But Koscielny is hoping to be back in the first-team by November.
