Giroud accepts Henry criticism

Giroud insists he accepts the criticism of legend Thierry Henry

Arsenal attacker Olivier Giroud insists he accepts the criticism of the London club legend Thierry Henry.

The 30-year-old striker was heavily criticised by the Frenchman earlier this season.

” I followed it, it all came to my ears. He is absolutely right in his remarks,” he told RMC.

“To be a champion, you need three forwards who can put 50 goals together. Today, we are not there. It has been misinterpreted, we have made a whole lot of it. I will be glad to speak to him on the day I see him at the training centre.

“I did not want to respond to him because I know him, and I did not misinterpret his words as some have done. I take a step back from what he said to himself, I feel a certain strength of character has allowed me to get there.”
