Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud not worried about competition for places

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud believes he doesn’t need to worry for his place in the side, given his past contributions, despite there being stiff competition in attack, reports the Express.

Giroud has returned from injury, and has been in and out of the starting eleven, with his fitness levels currently dictating the amount of game time manager Arsene Wenger thinks he will be good for, but despite having Danny Welbeck in form as the lone centre-forward, Giroud is confident in his own abilities for the side.

“I’ve never been worried about my place. I don’t want to appear overly confident, but I know the coach will give me my chance. The club did well to buy Danny (Welbeck) as we needed another forward. The competition is very healthy. It makes us better. Questions are asked of those who were already there when a new player comes in, but the criticism doesn’t affect me. It’s on the pitch that counts. I’ve shown I can contribute,” said the Frenchman.
