Olivier Giroud Credits Arsene Wenger For Stay With The Gunners

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was on the verge of leaving the Emirate stadium during the summer but surprisingly remained at the club, despite playing second to Alexandre Lacazette in the striking role.

The 31 year old, France international maintains he has no regrets for staying, which he said was due to the trust manager Arsene Wenger has given him.

"I am not questioning myself about my future," Giroud said. "I am happy at Arsenal and I am fine with the decision to stay because I want to. I am thinking that the story between the club and myself was not over and not finished. We will see what happens but I am happy at Arsenal for the moment.

"Arsene's always supporting me and there is a lot of trust in each other. He trusts in me and I try to give it back on the pitch when I can."

He scored Wales, which afterwards made him Unite with one of his childhood idols Jean-Pierre Papin, as he now stands a goal from equaling Papin's record in fifth.

"Papin was one of my favourite players. I'm very grateful. I'm very proud and I always try to bring something to the national team.

"My best season was in 2015-16 when I scored 34 goals with Arsenal and the national team, including the Euros. Usually I play a bit less with Arsenal but I always try to keep my efficiency high. That's most important for me.

"I keep believing in my quality and I keep the faith. I have a lot of objectives with Arsenal and my country so I always try to move forward and keep scoring.

"It's always a pleasure to play for the national team and I think we played a good game. We have a better understanding on the pitch now especially with the young players so we are very delighted."
