Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has confirmed that he could re-consider his future at the club if he does not play regularly as the number one striker.
Giroud has been sidelined to a role from the bench after Alexis Sanchez’s surprising move as the centre forward. The French striker came off the bench to score twice in Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Sunderland last week but it was not enough to land him a starting XI role.
Giroud is currently away on international duty with France where he spoke with the local media and gave insight to his immediate future at the Emirates.
Giroud said: “I see my future at Arsenal until the date my contract ends. I feel good here and I want to play at the highest level for as long as possible.
“I still feel I’ve got the gas to do it. After, for sure I’d prefer to be playing, but it will be for me to find my place.
I won’t lie, there have been times I’ve been disappointed and not happy with my situation. But the coach knows that. He’s the one who makes the choices.
“I have not knocked on Arsene’s office. We’ll see, I’m not worried, my time will come.
With Giroud coming out and discussing his future in public we may see Arsene Wenger trust his striker more in coming weeks as Arsenal look to finally end their trophy drought in Premier League.
