Reports are out claiming that after securing q knockout spot for Arsenal in the Champions League, hat-trick hero Olivier Giroud wants the Gunner to at least reach the quarter-finals this year.
The Gunners have failed to progress beyond the last 16 of the tournament for the last five seasons and Giroud feels it is about time to break that trend.
The French international said : “It is fantastic for me and the team – we are really pleased to go through,”.
“In the Champions League it is one level up and we needed to be focused as a unit and together.
“But now we want to go as far as we can and the target is maybe to reach at least the quarter-final.
That is my personal target and I think that’s the same for the team.
“It’s the fourth year I have been here and I have never played in a quarter-final.”
