In a recent interview, the former Arsenal striker told talkSPORT: ‘Wow, that’s a good question! I think Mikel Arteta has got time to come back in the top four.

‘But sometimes the problem is that money plays a huge part in success also.

‘When you see Chelsea after winning the Champions League spend over £80million (£97.5m) on Romelu Lukaku to reinforce the forward line and after spending a lot of millions the year before, I think money plays a huge part.

‘That’s the thing with Arsenal. Maybe they don’t put as much in as their opponents.’

‘I spent three seasons-and-a-half there [at Chelsea],’ the France international added.

‘I had an amazing time at Arsenal but [at Chelsea] I can say even more because I won the big titles.

‘It was emotionally difficult to leave when I left Montpellier and Arsenal, but even more tough [at Chelsea] because I didn’t play the last three months so it was evidence for me to leave and go for another challenge.

‘I felt frustrated a little bit to not play the last three months because I contributed well to the Champions League success by finishing top scorer for the team.

‘But what can I say? We were so successful and I am so pleased with the FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League. I scored a few important goals.

‘It was tough to leave Chelsea and the Premier League but at the end of the day I think it was the best solution for me.’

Giroud is confident he is returning to his best again as he steps up his recovery from an ‘upsetting’ back problem.

‘I started the season very well, I made a good pre-season with goals,’ he went on.

‘My first game at the San Siro I scored a brace. I feel very good but after that I’ve been stopped in my good run because of Covid-19.


‘I think started too early from Covid-19 because I then got a back injury, something I’ve never had before.

‘I felt a bit upset as the back is so important and you can’t do anything without the back.

‘Now I start to get better and am training with the team so now hopefully I’ll be pain free and hopefully I’m in the squad for the weekend
