Chelsea striker Giroud predicts a ‘nice future’ for former club Arsenal

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud thinks that his former club Arsenal will have a ‘nice future,’ under their manager Unai Emery.

The 2018 World Cup winner believes that Emery has settled in very well in North London and that the players have already bought into how the Spanish coach wants the game to be played.

“I think Emery has settled well in the club, the players like him, the way they are training, his philosophy of the game. I spoke with some of them and they are quite happy, but you don’t forget what Arsene Wenger achieved in this club.’’ Giroud told ESPN.

Giroud went on to speak some more about Arsene Wenger who brought him to the Premier League from Montpellier in 2012 before returning to the subject of Emery.

“He basically built this club – if you take the different teams that used to train under Wenger, there were some unbelievable teams. We need to be patient with Emery and I think he will do very well at Arsenal. I’m not sure they’re better than before [yet], but one thing for sure is they’ve got a nice future.”

Arsenal are currently fifth in the league, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference, and six points behind Chelsea in fourth.

Giroud returns to his former club tomorrow evening when Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates in a game that will have a huge impact on the race for the top four.
