Olivier Giroud Admits His Arsenal FC Days Might Be Over

Olivier Giroud Admits His Arsenal FC Days Might Be Over

In the past some, like Hector Bellerin and Alex Iwobi, have used that chance to stake a claim for a permanent spot in the first-team, and several are knocking on the door once again. One of his strongest assets is his versatility, and as well as covering in central midfield he has the capacity to fill in for either of the two wing-backs.

Speaking to Arsenal Player he recalled fondly: 'I remember when we landed in Vietnam it was maybe 5am in the morning so I was so impressed by their welcome.

If there was more than a hint of fortune in Elneny's goal, what was nearly his second was nothing but class. Just minutes after the restart, the centre-back unleashed a curling effort from 25-metres that left Janjetovic rooted to the ground and the Wanderers goalkeeper was nearly as rattled as the crossbar that all that prevented a fourth Arsenal goal.

While Bramall took some time to rise to the top, Krystian Bielik was playing top-flight football in Poland at the age of 16. Giroud told the media that he will remain professional while on tour in Australia (and potentially later the Far East) with the rest of his teammates this summer, but he admits leaving the Emirates is an option.

Lacazette then developed into one of the premier strikers in Ligue 1, with over 100 goals from 203 appearances.

The end of last season showed just how quickly a crisis can emerge, as Arsenal were without Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel Paulista for the FA Cup final, so there is safety in numbers. He has effectively been promoted on account of Chris Willock's departure to Benfica.

The question of what's really going on behind the scenes becomes especially fascinating when one puts on a tin foil hat and refuses to buy the official narrative. In Holland, he trained under the watchful eye of Dennis Bergkamp, before honing his craft under Thierry Henry during his time with Arsenal's U19s. Will Ozil and Alexis Sanchez see Kolasinac and Lacazette as a step in the right direction? He has risen rapidly through the ranks, showcasing a natural poacher's instinct at every age group.

Western Sydney Wanderers' newly appointed captain Robert Cornthwaite promised to give Arsenal more of a test than Sydney FC had offered two days earlier and the towering defender was true to his word. I've been in Japan, in Vietnam and Indonesia.
