The Gunners boss explained that he
considers his compatriot an alternative to
Alexis Sanchez and is intrigued by the
possibility of starting the pair together at
once
Arsene Wenger accepts that Olivier Giroud
is frustrated with his lack of starting
action, but assured Saturday’s Old
Trafford hero that he remains a key player
at Arsenal.
Giroud rescues Arsenal again and shows
why he should have started
Giroud snatched a 1-1 draw from
Manchester United on Saturday, heading
home in the 89th minute after Arsenal had
turned in an otherwise shabby
performance.
The France striker has not started in the
Premier League yet this season, having
suffered a toe injury after being given an
extended break at the start of the
campaign.
He has scored three goals in as many
appearances from the bench in recent
weeks, however, and Wenger says such
form could put starting striker Alexis
Sanchez under pressure.
“Olivier Giroud, I consider him as a regular
player,” Wenger told reporters at a press
conference.
“He was on holiday, after that he came
back and got injured and he’s just coming
back for a few games. It’s true that in the
last two games he’s a bit frustrated but
that’s normal because he’s ready to go
again.
