Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud Bracing For French Jeers


Olivier Giroud 29

Reports are out claiming that Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud expects to be jeered by his own French fans at this month’s Euros.

Giroud scored his 15th goal for his country, and fifth in his last six internationals, in the Euro 2016 hosts’ friendly against Cameroon on Monday.

But Giroud was jeered as he continues to struggle to win over France supporters, reports the Mirror.

The 29-year-old has been caught in the crossfire of boss Didier Deschamps’ decision to leave Karim Benzema out of his finals squad altogether.

The Real Madrid striker was dropped because he is under investigation for his part in an alleged plot to blackmail France team-mate Mathieu Valbuena.
