Giroud’s Arsenal form is scaring former Montpellier boss

One man who knows Olivier Giroud well but will not be pleased at the striker hitting form at Arsenal is Rene Girard, the manager of Montpellier. Girard is well aware of what Giroud can do, as he helped make him the player he is. Girard is hoping that his extensive knowledge of Giroud will help him to prepare Montpellier to stop the Arsenal front man from scoring, but he doesn’t sound overly optimistic.

“Olivier worked very hard for us and we almost sculpted him into the player he is today. We made history at the club and had great times.

“Unfortunately for us, he is rediscovering his best form and starting to score goals, but we have tactics to try to stop him.

“We know how good he is, but there are lots of attacking threats here at Arsenal.”

Giroud’s former team mate and Arsenal transfer target, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, is captain of the French side and recently signed a new contract. He is looking forward to trying to stop Giroud, but he could be in for a torrid night, as long as the Arsenal team can get the ball to him. Giroud is looking to continue his recent run of five goals in five games, and would love to score against his former club.

The Frenchman has admitted that Montpellier helped him alot when he moved there from the French second division. He revealed that he doubted his ability early in his career, but his progress has been amazing. He is now an accomplished Premier league striker and is just getting better.

    It’s funny when people say “thumbs up or thumps down” for players and it’s even more funnier when they put the favorable choice at thumps up just for some green likes and a yellow background. lmfao @ them, desperate times.

    Is Rene Girard the former or current Montpellier Boss? The title is misleading.

    It is gratifying that most people are beginning to realise what qualities Olivier Giroud has. The first few games convinced me that there was a lot of potential in this player. However most people who believe only that which they see not what they can foresee continued to denigrate Olivier! Now they are the people singing his praises! Olivier and his new colleagues Podolski and Cazorla will change Arsenal’s landscape. I am very convinced of this. For once in many years the team has good players who still have considerable time on their contracts and who are committed to play for the team. These players look to be diffrent from Nasri and Adebayor who were glory seekers for themselves and not the team.

    @davidrusa,i could not have put it better myself!!i know things are not perfect yet but they are “really”improving this time even if its slowly,we are finally learning from past mistakes,people are making a big deal about theo,s contract situation but what they dont realize its that quite few of our 1st team players are signed for the next few years,all our new signings&players like verm,kos,scezn,ox,wilsh….so with few more quality signings we should more competitive,amazingly this time around i believe the board will try hard to make this team even better for the near future!!UP THE GUNNERS&IN ARSENE WE TRUST
