Ex-footballer-turned-full-time-good-looking bloke, Robert Pires *swoon *, believes that fellow handsome Gallic stallion, Olivier Giroud, will come good at the Emirates…err, in front of goal.
Galloping to the defence of Arsene Wenger’s summer signing, the silky-haired ‘Invincible’ stressed that our abdominally-fabulous hitman, who has scored nine goals in 30 appearances since arriving from Montpellier, is still in an adaptation period and will no doubt become more dangerous in the box once he’s acclimatised to life in the Premier League.
“The people need to give Olivier time,” said Pires as he sat in a London café nodding knowingly as beautiful women fainted all around him.
Sipping on a Courvoisier with the dulcet tones of Charles Aznavour playing in the background, he continued:
“I know he is a good player. It is very difficult to adapt from French football and everyone needs time, even Thierry [Henry] did in the first half of his first season at the club.
“I would tell supporters to relax, Olivier will score goals.”
As if that wasn’t enough, the 39-year-old (my how he matures like a fine wine) also spoke warmly about his mentor Arsene Wenger, insisting, “For me, I always believe in Wenger.”
With that Bobby threw a leather jacket over his shoulder, paid the bill with a wink and departed the café in a scene reminiscent of a Linx deodorant advert.
*Sigh* Arseblog News does love it when Bobby whispers in our ear and tells us to relax and for what it’s worth we too believe Olivier ‘I run like an Ostrich’ Giroud will start to score some goals soon too.
