Arsenal’s newest signing Olivier Giroud seems to think that the Gunners will be outsiders in the title chase next season and that the two Manchester clubs are probably the ones to watch if you’re asking yourselves who will win the Premiership.
Giroud seems to be hopeful, but not really fully convinced that Arsenal have a chance at beating the odds, which is weird if we think about the fact that they have a much better team than last year since Podolski and Olivier joined.
“I won’t ever forget that season because in a footballer’s career, winning the title isn’t forgotten so fast.
“There was a good mentality in the team, good quality, with some good players, and I look forward to finding that quality and spirit with Arsenal – that’s why I chose Arsenal.
“With Montpellier, it wasn’t written that we were going to be champions, so that’s what made it more beautiful.
“With Arsenal, we might not be favourites, like the Manchester clubs, to be champions. We’re outsiders, but I’m convinced that we can do something big.
“That’s what we did with Montpellier, and I’m proud with what I accomplished there.”
This is a bit worrying, because Arsenal can’t be called underdogs despite the fact that they haven’t won a trophy in a while. Wenger must do something to get them to understand that they have all the chances to win a trophy. Morale might make the difference this time around if the Frenchman plays his cards right.
