Arsenal roundup: Olivier Giroud doesn't like people talking about his hairstyle

Published Add your comment

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has admitted that he gets p***** when people discuss his hairstyle, reports the Daily Mail. 

The French international, who moved to north London in 2012, has enjoyed a fine season for the Gunners, having found the back of the net on 14 occasions in England's elite division this term. 

Despite his on-pitch success, though, it's his appearance that is often analysed, which is something he's not entirely happy about.

Speaking to reporters, the Arsenal man said:  "I don’t want to speak any more about my appearance, my hair or anything, I get p***** about that.

"I don’t know (if I am an animal). I know one thing, in sport you have to question yourself every week and be ready in your head and you have to be at 100 per cent of determination if you want to keep going and win games, you cannot afford to be at 80 or 90 per cent."

Ok, Giroud has a point: ultimately, despite being the subject of criticism at time throughout his Arsenal career, the forward has enjoyed a fine season under the guidance of Arsene Wenger. 

He's led the line admirably at times and has gone from strength-to-strength over the course of the past 12-months or so. Gunners fans will no doubt be hoping he can consistently hit top form next season. 

Pedro swoop 

Arsenal have an interest in Barcelona winger Pedro, who could ultimately replace Theo Walcott in north London, according to the Express.

The report claims that the north London outfit could make a £24 million move for the highly rated La Liga ace, as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger goes in search of overhauling Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table. 

Sanchez: Arsenal must win the league 

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has insisted that the club are desperate to win the Premier League title next season. 

The Chilean ace, who moved to the Emirates from Spanish giants Barcelona last summer, has enjoyed a fine debut campaign with the club, and is determined to achieve great things under the guidance of Arsene Wenger. 

Sanchez said: "All my team-mates want to win titles. Honouring the colours of our club.

"I like London, I quickly adapted. I'm very comfortable with Arsenal. In everyday life, too, the city is wonderful and it helps me be a better player. I am very happy to be at Arsenal.

"I have started my adventure here. Now I have to keep learning from football and from my team-mates. I must also better know the club and the league."
