Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is adamant that he has no regrets about staying at Arsenal, despite having limited first-team opportunities this season.
The 31-year-old has found Premier League starts hard to come by after Arsene Wenger this campaign and has lost his position as the Gunners’ main striker to club record signing Alexandre Lacazette.
Giroud was linked with a move away from the club in the summer and could have joined Marseilles, or Premier League rivals Everton and West Ham.
However, the Frenchman is adamant that he has no regrets over his decision to remain at the Emirates Stadium and insists he is not thinking about his future.
“I am not questioning myself about my future. I am happy at Arsenal and I am fine with the decision to stay because I want to,” said Giroud, as quoted by The Telegraph.
Regular first-team football for Giroud this has come in the form of the Europa League and the EFL Cup, but the striker says there is still more to come from his time at Arsenal.
“I am thinking that the story between the club and myself was not over and not finished,” he said.
Giroud has played in 10 of the Gunners’ 11 Premier League games this season, but all of his appearances have come from the substitutes bench.
His situation at Arsenal has not changed his position as the main striker for the French national team.
He scored his 29th goal for France in the 2-0 friendly win against Wales on Friday night but is now a doubt for the Premier League clash with rivals Tottenham on Saturday.
