Arsenal trust Arsene Wenger, insists Olivier Giroud
Olivier Giroud defends Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger
Olivier Giroud says the Arsenal players have full trust in under-pressure manager Arsene Wenger.
The 64-year-old boss was heavily criticised after the north London side suffered a 3-2 loss to Stoke City at The Britannia last weekend.
And Giroud, who has scored two goals in six appearances, accepts that it is the Gunner squad’s job to make Wenger look good on the football pitch.
“I think it is the minority of fans, and it is our job on the pitch to make them happy and show them he is a great manager, and that he is the best man for the situation,” Giroud told talkSPORT.
“We trust him, especially now when we are on a bad run, he has a good way of making us feel confident and keeping our heads up.
“It is disappointing to see [the banners] because we are a team and a pack, from the players to the boss to the medical staff, we are a team, so when one of those people are getting criticised by someone we take it personally, it gives us the power to want to fight harder and play well.”
