Giroud pleads for patience

Published Add your comment

Olivier Giroud has urged Arsenal fans to show patience as he looks to step out from Robin van Persie's shadow.

Holland forward Van Persie has joined Manchester United in a £24million deal following a public statement earlier in the summer that the former Gunners skipper would not be signing a new deal.

Giroud added: "Last season was wonderful here for Robin, but before that, he took time to settle. I am just asking people to be a little patient with me."
