Olivier Giroud ready to fight to secure a regular place in Arsene Wenger's squad

By

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud admits it is frustrating to sit on the bench but also that he is ready to fight for a regular place.

The Frenchman has this season lost his place in Arsene Wenger's starting eleven with Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez leading the Gunners offensive department.

But the 30-year-old says he will not give up and will fight to convince his boss.

"I see my future at Arsenal until the date my contract ends," he told L'Equipe

"I feel good here and I want to play at the highest level for as long as possible.

"I still feel I've got the gas to do it. After, for sure I'd prefer to be playing, but it will be for me to find my place.

"I won't lie, there have been times I've been disappointed and not happy with my situation. But the coach knows that. He's the one who makes the choices.

"I have not knocked on Arsene's office. We'll see, I'm not worried, my time will come.

"He's always supported me in the difficult times and I have every confidence he'll keep doing so.

"I'll fight for my place. What's happening today is the story of my career. It's endless in football.

"I'm not the kind of player to give up and to demand things. Even if I don't play all the matches, I'm sure the coach will use me. We'll take stock at the end of the season."
