London, Dec.12 (ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lavished praise on Olivier Giroud, describing the French international as one of the ‘best strikers in Europe’.
Arsenal completed their incredible group stage comeback and progressed through to the Champions League last-16, thanks to Giroud’s scintillating hat-trick against Olympiakos.
Wenger said that one has to give Giroud credit for the number of goals he had scored for Arsenal, adding that the Frenchman was not only a goalscorer but also works a lot for the team, the Guardian reported.
He also believe that the France forward was an underrated striker because of his less spectacular actions, but admired his resilience for returning as an even better player.
Giroud has scored 10 goals in his past 12 matches. (ANI)
