After years of uncertainty over Giroud’s role at Arsenal by the fans, Thierry Henry seems to think the Frenchman can be a super sub for the gunners.
The Frenchman came off the bench to grab two crucial goals for Arsenal against Sunderland, scoring the second and third goal of the 4-1 win.
Wenger seems to prefer Alexis Sanchez as a lone striker and Giroud’s brace might not be enough to earn him a start.
However, that super sub role could be just the one Arsenal need to finally win the title again, says Thierry Henry, as long as Giroud is willing to play the part.
“Yes he can be a plan B but I don’t know if he’s going to be happy coming off the bench but I think you win a title like that.” Henry told Sky Sports.
“Manchester United had Solskjaer and Sheringham, Dzeko for Man City, we had Sylvain Wiltord so can he accept that to do that?
“We know the boss, Arsene Wenger, now likes to play with Alexis Sanchez inside and he came on and did the job and he did it very well.
“Giroud is amazing in the air and that gives you another option. If you can have Sanchez in the middle and him coming off the bench or sometimes maybe you start him and Sanchez goes back outside or Sanchez goes around him but that’s more difficult because you’re playing Mesut Ozil.
“I think you have a different option but that’s great for the boss.”
