Olivier Giroud has stated that he is happy to be able to contribute to Arsenal’s success following a difficult start to the season but has warned his teammate to do all they can to avoid last minute victories.
Having been injured during the start of the season, Giroud found it difficult to make a return to the first-team after getting back to full fitness but the Frenchman has recently cemented his place in the lineup, scoring in five successive matches.
Now Giroud is arguably one of the first names on the team sheet for Arsenal and the striker has gone on to state that he is happy to make contributions on the pitch for the Gunners once again after enduring a frustrating time on the bench.
The 30-year-old told Arsenal’s official website: “It’s always hard when you see the team doing well and you’re not on the pitch. You can’t show what you want to do, what you can do.
“I tried to bring my small cog to the machine when I came in.
“I was lucky to make a difference against Sunderland and Manchester United, and after I played two games in the Champions League and scored again.
“Step by step, I came back well and you see the confidence was getting higher and higher. I never doubted my quality, it was just about having game time. When you have time to show what you can do on the pitch, it’s better for a striker. I want to carry on like that and keep the efficiency high.
“I’ve always tried to bring something to the team and I was very pleased to score important goals, especially in the last minutes of games. But as I’ve said before, we need to be stronger at the beginning of games because I’m not going to score goals in the last minute every week!”
