Olivier Giroud didn’t try to hide throughout the season that he expected and wanted to play more, and once the season was over, he told reporters that he can’t spend another one playing as little as last year.
Several Premier League clubs are reported to be interested in giving him the chance to have the starring role he is after, but none of those is… Arsenal.
The French striker may not need to leave the Gunners after all, judging by how Arsene Wenger talked about him.
It has been a frustrating season for him because he has not played a lot. And when he has played well, he has not always played the next match
the Arsenal manager started telling reporters, acknowledging that his compatriot is right to feel frustrated.
He has won us a lot of points when he has come on because he has scored lots of times. He has qualities that our team need
Wenger added, making it clear that he wants to have Giroud at Arsenal next season as well.
The key, though, is how much game time can he guarantee him. As Giroud said recently, he is 30, he can’t afford to sit on the bench, especially when he does deliver when called to help the team.
