Arsène Wenger on Olivier Giroud’s situation: “He’s been hard done.”

Speaking as a pundit on BeIN Sports tonight, Arsène Wenger weighed in on the treatment that Olivier Giroud has received at Chelsea this season.

“Honestly, I feel he was hard done. He was in behind Batshuayi. And I feel that for me that was quite surprising. Because he’s a guy who has quality, uses well his body, he’s intelligent, brings his players in, and when he doesn’t pass on the ground, you can use the ball in the air. Second ball there is always a chance with him because no defender heads the ball out clearly with him. I stood sometimes behind him in training, and I’m quite tall, when the ball gets to him, I didn’t see the ball. He is so massive, so strong, and he uses well his body.”
