William Gallas Exclusive: Giroud A Perfect Example For Longevity

Former France international William Gallas has hailed Olivier Giroud as “the perfect example” for aspiring young players looking for a long career at the top of the game. Giroud is now Les Bleus’ all-time top scorer with 53 goals, and is looking to become one of an exclusive group of players who have won the World Cup in back-to-back tournaments. Gallas credits the 36-year-old for battling back from being dropped at Arsenal, proving himself again at Chelsea before moving to his current side, AC Milan - and helping them win Serie A last season.

Giroud Praise

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “I don't know if they will give [Giroud] a statue, but the guy would have won two World Cups! 

“Even the best players for France have never won it twice. You have to give Giroud a lot of credit because what he has done, taking the record for France’s all-time top goalscorer, that wasn’t easy.  

“Giroud is the perfect example of a player who has a strong mentality. When he played for Arsenal, at the beginning he was in the starting XI but then he was dropped to the bench. 

“He didn’t give up and went to Chelsea, where he started on the bench and put himself into the starting XI.

“He went to AC Milan and has been one of their most important players, winning the title last season. 

“He goes to the national team, didn’t score a single goal at the 2018 World Cup and gets hammered for it. 

“He lost his place to [Karim] Benzema and he didn’t give up. 

“Look at him now. What an example to any young player who wants to have a long-term career at the highest level.”

Giroud’s next challenge with France is to negotiate a World Cup semi-final against giant-killers Morocco, who have made history as the first African nation to reach the last four.
