Olivier Giroud wants to write more Arsenal history

Arsenal star Olivier Giroud is keen for the Gunners to “write a really big page of Arsenal’s history” by ending their nine-year trophy drought and qualifying for the Champions League, reports The Daily Star.

The Gunners’ last trophy win came in 2005 when they beat Man United on penalties in the FA Cup Final, and they have a chance to win that same tournament when they take on Hull City at Wembley next month.


Giroud is keen to help his side achieve that target, and also wants Arsene Wenger’s men to hold out in their bid for a top-four finish in the league.


The club currently sit 5th in the league, two points behind in-form Everton with five games remaining. They are four clear of 6th placed Spurs and have a game in hand, but their primary target league-wise will be to breach the top four and reach Europe’s top club competition as opposed to featuring in next season’s Europa League.


The French striker said: “We have a great opportunity to write a really big page of Arsenal's history, to qualify for the Champions League and to win the FA Cup final. It will be an exciting finish.”


There have been claims that the Arsenal players may be feeling the effects of a heavy fixture list, with their semi-final clash with Championship outfit – and present FA Cup holders – Wigan going all the way to penalties.


Giroud, however, is having none of it, and insists the players are well rested and well prepared for the season’s run-in.


He continued: “It is OK. In the last weeks, we played just once in the week so we have had a good rest.


“We need to keep the good things we did against Wigan and, even if we are going to be tired, I think it is really good for our heads to win the semi-final.


“We know that we have to win every single game. We are going to have six finals now, if I can say that. Hopefully Everton will lose some points, maybe against the two Manchester clubs or Southampton.


“Every single game will be tough for everyone so let's do the job first and we will have a look at where we are.”
