Ian Wright along with Thierry Henry are considered to be 2 of the best players to have ever worn the Arsenal jersey. Wright played for Arsenal from 1991 until 1998 and during this period of time, he managed to make over 200 appearances and scored 128 goals for the English club.
Even though it’s been around 17 years since Wright last played for Arsenal, he still remains up to date with how things are going with the Premier League club and Wright himself has stated on numerous occasions that Arsenal is one of his most preferred clubs.
Wright retired from playing professional competitive football back in 2000 and since then, he has turned into a football pundit and radio personality. In one of the most recent television sessions of Ian Wright, he talked about Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League and Wright emphasized on the importance that Olivier Giroud has played and will continue to play for Arsenal.
Former star of Arsenal, Ian Wright believes that Olivier Giroud has what it takes to propel Arsenal to the league title as he said: “I think he is. I’ve always thought he was because he scores goals.My only problem with Olivier is the fact that can he really dig in with defenders that are trying to batter him all over the place, and he did. He showed he could do that. If he does that with Ozil in the form that he is in, Sanchez to come back, then of course because he scores goals’’
Olivier Giroud is going through one of the best seasons of his entire career as the Frenchman has scored 12 goals in 21 appearances with Arsenal which is way more goals than any other player in the squad of Arsene Wenger and Wright believes that Giroud can continue pushing Arsenal to the top of the Premier League.
