– And he also admitted that signing another striker ‘Aubameyang’ did not help matters
Former Arsenal striker, Olivier Giroud, has admitted that it was new signing Aubameyang that forced him to leave the Gunners for Chelsea.
The 31-year-old made the statement while speaking with local reporters ahead of France pre World Cup friendly games this weekend, he said: “It is certain that for me, the choice was clear, I had to leave Arsenal. It was like that,”
“From the moment when the transfer window opened, the coach had decided to take a new attacker, he paid a certain price.
“It was obvious that I had to leave. You’re not on top when you play less and see your teammates on the field. I could not be satisfied with this role, even more with the signing of a new attacker.”
