Laurent Koscielny saves accordion factory

When Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny isn't being part of Arsenal's Jenga style season deconstruction, he's busy donating €600,000 to save an accordion factory.


I haven't really read this story but here's a quote:
The Maugein factory makes the accordions from scratch and had a turnover of €800,000 in 2012. However, hit by competition from cheaper instruments made in Eastern Europe and China, it went into receivership last December. In 1939, it employed 300 workers.
So as you can clearly see, he collects accordions like Jack Donaghy collects cookie jars - each one symbolic of locking up an emotion or regret.  Speaking of Arsenal and collecting things based on painful memories, Arsene Wenger's basement must look like the fucking warehouse in Citizen Kane by now
