Olivier Giroud achieved a huge milestone as an Arsenal player last night as he scored his 100th goal as an Arsenal player, which is obviously a proud moment as he is only the 19th player to do so. And his teammates were also in high praise for him as both Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker had only good words to say for their French teammate.
“He’s so valuable to our squad and he’s earned the respect of everyone by behaving properly, as a member of this team,” Mertesacker said. The German defender also added that he can’t praise Giroud’s attitude and approach enough.
“He’s a fantastic player with many qualities and to score 100 goals is an amazing achievement and he joins a very select few,” the Wales international told Arsenal Player. “Congratulations to him, we’re delighted to have him in our team and hopefully he’ll score a lot more.”
