Is Everything Fine Between Giroud And Sanchez?? Here’s The Answer You Waiting For!!
Nevertheless, working with a familiar face and for a club not far from his home could be appealing.
Moreover, getting his toes wet in coaching could yet improve his chances of getting bigger roles – perhaps as part of the United first-team coaching staff – further down the line.
Alexis has already registered eight goals across all competitions in his new position, and as a result, Giroud has seen his playing time limited to just one start so far this season and a handful of substitute appearances.
Despite this, when speaking to Telefoot, the French striker insisted that he isn’t concerned about his future at the Emirates Stadium and also commented on his playing relationship with Sanchez.
The ex-Montpellier star said, via the Daily Mirror: “At this time, the coach (Wenger) has opted for the solution of Sanchez leading the attack, partly because of my injury, so I now hope to get more game time of course.
“The coach makes his own choices but I am counting on myself to come back strong and I will work hard to do so. I have no doubts over my Arsenal future.”
On Alexis seemingly taking his place in Arsenal’s starting XI, he claimed: “As with each year, there is competition for places at the big clubs. There are a lot of attackers with different styles of play.
“We (himself and Sanchez) have different profiles and can be used according to the team we are up against, but we can also be played together.”
His national team manager Didier Deschamps, a known fan of Giroud, has continued to start the Gunner despite his struggles at club level and has backed his compatriot to rediscover his very best form.
Giroud may lack pace, but there is no doubt that he offers Arsenal something different to their other attacking options and he will hope to be involved this Saturday when his side travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.
