(PRWEB UK) 6 October 2013
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA Facebook fan page of Laurent Koscielny has broken the 15% daily growth barrier making it the fastest growing Laurent Koscielny page on Facebook. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Arsenal defender since it's launch and now boasts a vibrant and rapidly growing community of fans. The Facebook page along with the Laurent Koscielny player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
The Frenchman built upon a good first year at Arsenal, emerging as one of the team’s most consistent players in 2011/12 and becoming widely regarded as a top Premier League defender.
His pace, athleticism and quick reactions were big assets to the Gunners’ back line, as was his enviable record in one-on-one duels. One of the first names on Arsène Wenger’s teamsheet when fit, he also scored the vital goal at West Bromwich Albion that sealed Arsenal’s place in the Champions League for the forthcoming campaign.
Laurent also featured twice at right back when Bacary Sagna and Carl Jenkinson were injured, slotting in seamlessly and confirming his aptitude to face any task head-on.
He earned a deserved debut for the French national side against the United States in November 2011, and his fine club form resulted in a call-up to Laurent Blanc’s Euro 2012 squad. He was one of the side’s better performers in 2-0 quarter-final defeat to Spain.
Laurent joined Arsenal from Ligue 1 side FC Lorient in July 2010. He had spent just one season at the Stade du Moustoir, having previously represented Tours in Ligue 2. He was named in the division’s best XI for the 2008/09 season.
Guzan has been capped by the USA on numerous occasions and featured in the 2008 Olympic Games and 2010 World Cup squads.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Laurent Koscielny really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Arsenal this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Laurent Koscielny.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player Profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
