Arsene Wenger blasts critics over star player

Published Add your comment

Olivier Giroud may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but he’s certainly more than adequate for Arsene Wenger it would seem. The French coach hit out at critics of the striker, who got their knives out after Giroud’s lacklustre showing against Monaco, and said that the 28-year-old had shown his mental strength by bouncing back in style. The forward has found the net in the two Premier League outings since that European clash, and he’ll be looking to make amends in the second-leg at the Stade Louis stadium come March 17th. Elsewhere, this summer looks set to be a period of change in the midfield department for Arsenal, with Abou Diaby, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini all facing uncertain futures. Wenger has hinted Diaby could be offloaded, whilst it’s rumoured he will sell Flamini if he can convince Arteta to say.
