Arsene Wenger hints at Arsenal future for striker Olivier Giroud

By

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was full of praise for striker Olivier Giroud after the Frenchman scored one of the most memorable goals in the history of the club against Crystal Palace.

The 30-year-old struggled to secure a regular place in Wenger's squad at the start of the season but will be a key asset for the 67-year-old in 2017.

"It was surprising, exceptional, efficient and beautiful so I would say he will be remembered forever for this goal," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"But I liked as well that it was at the end of an exceptional move and he had a surprising reflex and an efficient one, but Olivier Giroud scores great goals, and important ones.

"Maybe we do not always remember that he scores great goals, but also important goals at key moments for the team.

"I think he has improved his link up play since he has arrived and in front of goal as well. He is a top striker, who is a top-quality man as well, so I am very pleased that he can compete for us.

"It also shows you how quickly things can change because two months ago everyone said, 'Giroud doesn't play', then today he is a hero.

"When it didn't go well for him, he worked and that is something that I rate. Our job is to be ready for a chance, and he worked hard when he didn't play and now he gets rewarded, and that is right."
