Oliver Giroud is now labeled the Best striker in the World by former France international David Trezeguet when he spoke to RMC Sport.
Giroud divided opinion at the Emirates Stadium and it was almost the same story at the Stamford Bridge but he has consistently built on his play and achieved success in his career, much more than those that were rated ahead of him.
“There really aren’t any (strikers like Giroud) anymore,” sighs Trezeguet, who scored the winner for France in the Euro 2000 final against Italy.
“Germany have suffered a lot without a centre-forward. The Netherlands and others have a clear idea without a centre-forward. It is difficult to explain. We saw Spain, who lacked efficiency. Either there was (Alvaro) Morata or there was nothing.
“There is beauty, the technical side but you have to finish the job. And Giroud seems to me to be the most complete in this competition.”
He added that “When he first came to Arsenal in pre-season of 2012 we were like; ‘Woah, who’s this guy?’,” former Gunners team-mate Jack Wilshere tells The Sun.
“Nobody had really heard of him. But he was a big presence in the dressing room and a good-looking bloke who was first at everything. He was first in the gym scores, won every race, and was totally ripped. He was in some shape.
“(Giroud is) underrated in England. He’s a proper striker. 73 Premier League goals for Arsenal before moving to Chelsea. And one thing he always had was great self-belief. He backed himself to succeed, no matter what anyone said.
“He got better and better and kept going, which says a lot about someone’s personality.”
