Giroud wants to do ‘great things’ at Arsenal

Giroud justarsenal.comThere have been many recent rumours regarding Arsenal players with all the uncertainty around the club at the moment, but there was very little said about our French striker Olivier Giroud, who has recently signed a contract extension with the Gunners. But with many reports saying that Arsenal are trying to sign a new top-class striker for next season, it has been mooted that Marseille were ready to offer £20 million to take him back to France.

But now Giroud’s agent has issued a denial that the centre-forward has any interest in leaving the Emirates, although that may change if a new manager comes in to replace Arsene Wenger. Michael Manuello was quoted as saying: “There was talk that Olivier was in contact with Rudi Garcia.

“I said that that was false. There is no contact between Marseille and us. At this point, there is no contact.

“Things have not changed since his contract extension. Our desire is be at Arsenal long term. Olivier has been there for five years.

“The aim for Olivier is still to go as far as possible in this adventure with Arsenal to do great things there.”

“When we know exactly what Arsene Wenger is doing, we will ask ourselves questions,”

“We will think about what is possible and what is not possible.

“Today when Olivier and I talk, there are no discussions about other projects. His future is not only linked with that of the manager.

“It is linked to what Arsenal are going to do and if there is a change at Arsenal in terms of how Olivier is implicated at the project.

“At some point, if the two are to separate, we will see.”

There are many Arsenal fans that think Giroud has had enough chances with the Gunners and should be moved on regardless, but Wenger has made it clear that he wants Oli to stay. So it looks like the only way we will be getting rid of him is if Le Prof leaves….

    hahahahaha, great things at arsenal , i love it . how many years is he with us now , and suddenly he decides to do great things . what utter tripe from the donkey.

      Has ever done a great thing at Arsenal? Has he ever scored 17 goals in the PL?

  2. Janssen says:

    I have no doubt about Giour will lead the line again next season and I feel bad for the fans who have been waiting for a world class or at least top striker who can bring some excitement back to our front line. Hope is big in sport and with Giroud up front there is very little hope. Did Wenger ever explain why he demoted Sanchez away for the central striker spot after he took it by storm and raced to the top of the scoring chart? Or did he leave it to us to just guess? My guess is punishment for Sanchez falling out of line and wanting to win too much.

    I have said before I won’t be able to watch Arsenal next season if Wenger and his uncompetitive cronies stay.

    Sanchez 29 Ozil 29
    Giroud 31 Monreal 31
    Koz 32 Debuchy 32
    Cazorla 33 Mertz 33 Cech 35
    Wilshere injured again. Xhaka struggling.
    Jenkinson Chambers Campbell not good enough.
    Ramsey Chamberlain + Gibbs average.
    Perez Asano Sanogo not used.
    The team got butchered 10-2 by Bayern
    The club is 20 points off the EPL lead.
    Yet Arsene says this is the best squad he has ever had
    and the board can’t wait for Arsene to sign the extension.
    Am I missing something?

    Thanks to Giroud for his goals, considering the low price Arsenal paid for him. But Arsenal will never dominate the Premiere League again if they keep relying on tall target man tactic like this. Arsenal have to find another manager that can build the attack from the back, also players that can possess and pass the ball well.

    Fifteen millions is a good price for Giroud. We will lose a strong tall target man, but it is time for Arsenal to increase their football level like Tottenham. I think they can do it by changing the manager to someone like Jardim, Pochettino and Simeone.

      giroud is at the wrong team if eh was at roma eg dzeko he would be more appreciated

  5. ThirdManJW says:

    Go and do ‘great things’ with Arsenal on Fifa, Giroud, because you’re not doing it in real life are you!

    After half a decade he’s still starting upfront for us…depressing!

  6. bran99 says:

    Only at Arsenal will a flop play to his very best (average and below average) and still comes out to say he wants to win something or things with the club.. so they think we already forget how they play and now promises to do better in the near future

    1. lord wafflebury says:

      Had his chance to do great things but has constantly failed miserably..of course he wants to stay as nobody else would be prepared to pay what he gets at arsenal or would have sold him before now. Another piece of deadwood long past his sell by date.

  7. Nebsy says:

    He will rock the Europa League qualifying matches. I believe that falls under great things in his books.
    Great things can also be qualifying for Europa League next season, scoring more than ten goals in all competitions, having 300+ great hair days. I believe that’s what he has in mind when he says great things.

  8. princegooner says:

    what great things, is he talking about the depressing non appearances from him in games or his inability to beat a marker or outrun defenders or failing to score sitters or the annoying tongue sticking out his mouth…that’s shows the level we’ve dropped to over the years. My GOD My Arsenal this is what we’ve become a laughing stock under wenger’s watch. SMH.

  9. Vanpayslip is hood ornaments/junkies win awards in my tournaments says:

    Not linked with the manager? No other manager would be crazy enough to think you are a superstar! It’s P45 for you if Wenger leaves

  10. Break-on-through says:

    It’s depressing that we have to wait til these players get too old before we get rid.

    1. Janssen says:

      But not as depressing as to have to watch them play.
