Giroud needs to be smarter, says Arsenal boss Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said striker Olivier Giroud needs to be smarter in the penalty area, according to ESPN.

Giroud revealed in an interview with L’Equipe that Wenger had been on his case about the way he uses the ball, as well as his movement off it. “Wenger often gives me corrections after matches. We are talking about opportunities,” Giroud said.


“To him, I am not crafty enough. Once he told me I am too frank in my runs, too predictable. I have to be more confusing,” the France striker continued. “I feel I can go on improving. I can improve some parts of my game and have better statistics.


“I am working hard in front of goal post to try to sort out some details. I think about missed opportunities, notably against Chelsea. I have to be more decisive in the box, but also in my way to keep the ball and defend. At least once a week I try to work in front of goal. I have been doing it systematically since I have been at Arsenal. I need it.”


Giroud netted his first World Cup goal on Friday as Les Bleus beat Switzerland 5-2 to confirm their progress from Group E. It was his ninth for his country in 32 caps and has 39 goals in 98 games for the Gunners.
