Arsenal legend Thierry Henry insists Olivier Giroud has plenty to offer France at this summer’s Euros.
Henry, the north Londoners’ greatest ever goalscorer, has previously argued that Arsene Wenger’s side couldn’t win the league with his compatriot leading the line.
But he said: “He is a very good striker.
“He won the league in France but was it enough for Arsenal as a team since he went there? No.
“But yes he is good enough to play for France. He is good with his back to the net. He has that touch.
“Is he the guy that’s going to run in behind like (Jamie) Vardy and bail you out of a game by dribbling past six players? No. But he has other attributes which are important for France and for Arsenal.
“What I said at the time was that Arsenal need a striker but I never said Giroud had to leave. People interpreted it that way. I didn’t say it.
