Arsene Wenger lavish praise on Giroud’s scorpion goal as the Frenchman scored an exquisite goal with an overhead back-heeled as Gunners thrash Crystal Palace
The Manager says Oliver Giroud superb goal will be forever remembered and says it’s up to the goals compared with the like of Bergkamp’s wonder goal against Newcastle and as well as Henry’s against Liverpool
According to Arsenal.com Wenger said “it was certainly in his top five” goals during his 20 years as Arsenal manager”
He transformed that goal into art – because of the surprise, because of the beauty of the movement and because of the efficiency.
“Every striker is certainly remembered for one, two or three special goals – and that will certainly be with him forever.”
“That will be remembered as a goal nobody will forget. Strikers are remembered for two or three goals and Olivier Giroud will be remembered for that goal forever. He brings the unexpected and we all come to football for the unexpected.
You cannot work on that in training. It’s just a reflex. I think it was an exceptional goal because it was at the end of a fantastic collective moment, which is what our game is about.
Wenger added: After that, it was a reflex that any goalscorer is able to take any part of his body, even if it is a little toe, to score a goal. I think Olivier had that kind of reflex. He transformed that goal into art – because of the surprise, because of the beauty of the movement and because of the efficiency.
He continued: That will be remembered as the Giroud goal that nobody will forget. Every striker is certainly remembered for one, two or three special goals – and that will certainly be with him forever.
