Laurent Koscielny has hailed Olivier Giroud’s good form telling media in France that his teammate is looking very confident in front of goal.
Speaking ahead of France’s World Cup qualifier with Georgia, the centre-back had only good things to say about a man who has scored four goals in five games this season.
“It’s true that Olivier has started the new season with a bang. During pre-season he scored a lot of goals so you feel he’s confident.
“We always say that you improve in your second season in England so I hope he keeps going, both for him and especially Arsenal.”
Meanwhile, Bacary Sagna is hoping that his form at Arsenal can be replicated at international level even if that means challenging for a centre-back spot with Les Bleus.
Eager to give manager Didier Deschamps a headache ahead in the build-up to the World Cup in Brazil, the defender explained that he’s desperate to regain his place.
“My goal is to put the coach in trouble by giving the maximum for the jersey and my France teammates.
“I’m happy to play in any position. I’ve been playing as a centre-back at Arsenal having moved from the right. [Lilian] Thuram did the same in the past and I don’t see why I can’t do it too.”
