Olivier Giroud salvaged a point for Arsenal at Southampton and boss Arsene Wenger, speaking to reporters ahead of a clash with West Ham, reacted to more questions about the striker’s future at the Emirates.
“He is not a sub for me, he is a regular player, but I have plenty of good strikers and you cannot play all of them together.
“He is a very important player and I have big respect for Olivier Giroud. If you look at his career since he came here, look how many French caps he’s got since he has been at Arsenal. He has not wasted his time. I can understand the frustration of every player that doesn’t play, but that’s part of the job when you go to a big club.
