Giroud: I deserve more playing time

Olivier Giroud

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has warned that he will not take kindly to another season spent on the bench, and may look for a move if things don't improve.

The French forward scored 12 goals for the Gunners last season but only made 11 starting lineups as he was relegated to a rotation role under manager Arsene Wenger.

Giroud has made it clear that he was not happy with his limited playing time and will have a chat with Wenger regarding his future.

"I will put up with the transfer market. I will discuss with the coach but he is relying on me," said Giroud, according to the Daily Mirror.

"It is true that I have had limited playing time but it was for a certain amount of time, it is true there were things against me. I will not settle for another year with such little playing time.

"I have will have to think carefully to consider it with my relatives and my advisers. It will be a decision that will be maturely thought about to have more more playing time."
