Giroud giddy over Gunners growth

30 April 2015, 14:03

Cape Town - Olivier Giroud has revealed his pride at Arsenal’s steady improvement since he joined the club in 2012.

The France international has enjoyed another fine campaign, scoring 18 goals in 30 appearances as the Gunners climbed the Premier League table and advanced to a second successive FA Cup final.

Giroud is pleased with the progress that the Gunners have made.

“Hopefully if we can have less injuries, keep the same group and with maybe one or two new players, we will have a great season [next year],” Giroud said on the Arsenal website.

“We have to finish this one first, and to get second and win the FA Cup would be a great season. It has been a few years since we finished second and if we can do it we can see an improvement, which is great.

“But the championship is not finished, which is why we need to focus in the last five games to keep second place.

“I know we can still improve ourselves and that is what we have been doing since I signed for Arsenal. I am proud about it and pleased with that.

“I just want to carry on like that, and I know if we keep our best players and this determination with the team spirit, we are going to join [next season's title] race.”
