Piers Morgan makes bizarre promise involving Arsenal star

Will Pier Morgan live up to his word if this happens?

Piers Morgan has promised to do a naked conga dance around Emirates Stadium if Olivier Giroud scores for Arsenal against Barcelona in their last 16 clash.

Giroud has faced a new wave of criticism after he failed to net as Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by Southampton at The Emirates on Tuesday night.

Arsenal have been struggling in front of goal in recent weeks and have not found the net in their last three Premier League games.

Celebrity Arsenal fan Morgan has been one of Giroud’s harshest critics in recent weeks, and the former Daily Mirror editor feels that the France striker does not possess the needed quality to help fire Arsenal to the Premier League title – despite him having scored 18 goals in all competitions this season.

And speaking on talkSPORT on Tuesday morning, Morgan underlined his lack of belief in Giroud by making this bizarre promise.

Morgan said: “We kid ourselves. We think we play good football.

“We have no clinical finishing prowess in front of goal. Giroud will get you 20, 22 goals a season. He is a specialist in scoring lots of goals against Newcastle.

“If Giroud scores against Barcelona, I will do a naked conga around the Emirates Stadium. You heard it here first!”
