When Olivier Giroud shows his grandkids his best goals they'll think he was better than Leo Messi

Olivier Giroud is celebrating his 33rd birthday today

Olivier Giroud is celebrating his 33rd birthday today.

The French striker burst onto the world scene when he helped Montpellier to the Ligue 1 title in 2012.

His heroics for Montpellier earned him a move to Arsenal the following summer and he became a fan-favourite during his spell with the club.

He scored 105 times in 253 appearances across six seasons for the north London side before moving to Chelsea in 2018.

Giroud hasn't been as prolific for the Blues, but he's proven to be a good squad player and has so far scored 19 times for the Blues.

Giroud won't be remembered as one of the greatest strikers in Premier League history.

However, he will always be remembered for a scorer of spectacular goals.

Giroud possesses incredible technical ability which has allowed him to score some screamers during his career.

Olivier Giroud scored a scorpion kick vs Crystal Palace in 2017

Giroud is a Puskas award winner for his scorpion kick against Crystal Palace in 2017.

And after Giroud scored an incredible overhead kick for Arsenal against Red Star back in October 2017, French journalist Matt Spiro tweeted: "When Giroud shows his grandkids a compilation of his best goals they're going to think he was better than Pele."

The tweet quickly went viral. Of course, he isn't better than Messi. The Argentine is in a completely different class.

But Giroud has arguably scored some even better goals than the Barcelona star.

An Arsenal fan, iGooner, has put Giroud's very best goals from 2011 into one video and ranked them from worst to best.

And it's absolutely no surprise that his scorpion kick came first. But the amount of wonder-goals he has scored is incredible.

Watch the video below:

Scorpian kicks, free-kicks, overheads kicks, volleys, long-range screamers... Giroud has scored them all.

He even scored after going on a Messi-esque dribble for Chelsea - a goal that is 'only' ranked his 11th best.

At 33, Giroud still has time to add to his collection of wonder-goals.
