Reports are out claiming that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that striker Olivier Giroud was ‘very angry’ after failing to capitalise on a handful of goal-scoring opportunities in the 1-1 draw with Tottenham.
Wenger believes that the Frenchman’s overwhelming desire to score actually had a negative impact on his performance in front of the goal.
“If we were really clinical we would have won it. Giroud had the chances to score. He is very angry.” Wenger said after the game.
“When you see a player who is happy to miss chances, you can worry.
“He is a real goalscorer and I think he did fight. At Bayern and tonight, Giroud did work extremely hard.
“He wanted too much to score, especially the opportunity he had in the six-yard box but it can happen. I accept that.”
