Olivier Giroud URGED To Leave Arsenal By National Team Coach

Published on:

Olivier Giroud has been told to part ways with Arsenal by by France assistant manager Guy Stephan.

Olivier Giroud has not started any Premier League matches for Arsenal this season.

The French striker has not started a single Premier League game for Arsenal this season since the arrival of his fellow countryman Alexandre Lacazette.

The former Lyon striker joined the Gunners in the summer for a club-record £52million – forcing Giroud down the pecking order.

Despite not being a regular starter, Giroud has made 25 appearances and has five goals to his name.

But his lack of game time at Arsenal has put his place in the France national squad under threat.

Guy Stephan claims that Giroud needs regular fooball to seal a spot in France’s World Cup squad

Didier Deschamps’ long-time assistant Guy Stephan has hinted that Giroud should leave the Gunners to seal his spot in the national squad.

“It’s clear that in terms of playing time, it’s insufficient,” Stephan told TF1.

“Didier’s already had the opportunity to talk about it.

“He has to find a solution in the coming weeks.”

When asked whether Giroud should part ways with the Gunners, Stephan said: “It’s up to him.

“He’s played very well in recent months with us.

“He has a very good goals-to-games ratio, but he now has to play.”
