The Gunners manager backed Olivier Giroud to succeed
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that Olivier Giroud will be a hit in the Premier League.
The Gunners completed the deal last week for the Frenchman and the boss believes the striker has all the skills to succeed in the top flight.
“I’ve known Olivier Giroud for some time,” Wenger said.
“He played for my friend Daniel Sanchez alongside Laurent Koscielny at Tours.
“The first time I saw him, I found he had something intelligent and dangerous. I always said he could score goals and assist his partners.
“Our game is based on cooperation between the players in the offensive phase and he’ll integrate easily.
“I don’t like simple goalscorers, they must also add to the collective. He is good in the air which is rare.
“He’s quite complete and has a great room for improvement.”
