Giroud: I had six very good months
Arsenal’s much-maligned striker Olivier Giroud made a remark on Tuesday which might not sit too well with fans frustrated by the outcome of the 2015/16 season.
The France international is currently on duty with his country as they prepare to host this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.
Giroud has faced all sorts of criticism for his barren form during the second-half of last season which saw him fail to score a league goal for a staggering four months (15 consecutive games) as the Gunners conceded the Premier League title to Leicester City.
However, the 29-year-old who finally managed to find the net in Arsenal’s final two games of the campaign has now suggested that fans who bashed him for his form were wrong.
“I had six very good months and at the end of the day, when you collect the stats, this was perhaps my best season with Arsenal.” Giroud said in an interview
The former Montpellier striker, who has been jeered by his own fellow citizens at games in France, is set to start in Friday’s Euro 2016 opening game against Romania.
