The oldest French accordion factory is facing closure but has received an unlikely assist in keeping it operational: Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny

Accordion company Maugein was founded in 1919 but has fallen on hard times recently due to cheaper exports from China and Eastern Europe. 

According to The Guardian, local mayor Bernard Combes reached out to Koscielny, who is from Tulle where the factory is located. 

Per the report, Koscielny has donated €600,000 (£495,000) and is part of an investment group aiming to keep the company open and, as a result, save 20 jobs.
