Arsene Wenger insists: Olivier Giroud is not just a substitute here at Arsenal

By

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes striker Olivier Giroud can still be an asset in his squad this season.

The Frenchman has struggled to enjoy regular first team football at the club but was pivotal for the Gunners as he scored in the 88th minute away at Southampton on Sunday.

"He is not a sub for me, he is a regular player, but I have plenty of good strikers and you cannot play all of them together," Wenger told reporters ahead of tonight's game.

"I speak to all of my players, but it's very difficult to speak about what we talk about openly. [Revealing what we talk about?] Yes, you would love that! You know enough already.

"He is a very important player and I have big respect for Olivier Giroud.

"If you look at his career since he came here, look how many French caps he's got since he has been at Arsenal. He has not wasted his time. I can understand the frustration of every player that doesn't play, but that's part of the job when you go to a big club."
