Olivier Giroud isn’t the most popular of men.
When your hair is the best thing about you, there is an issue, and sadly for the Frenchman, that’s the case when it comes to him, and not only is he getting it in the neck from Arsenal fans, even his national team performances are causing uproar.
Arsenal fans were gutted after hearing Danny Welbeck was out for months – after Arsene Wenger failed to sign a forward in the summer no less – but it’s not just the Gunners who see Giroud miss more than he scores.
Oh, no, Les Bleus and their fans are less than happy with the striker leading their line, and even booed him during their latest friendly against Serbia.
Here is how the internet reacted.
Arsenal fans will recognise this…
What a pass from Griezmann. Giroud, unsurprisingly, squanders. https://t.co/P1iEaNrs66

Why would I watch France? I watch Giroud miss chances every week, it's called International BREAK for a reason

Of course Wenger got some shade…
Awful miss from Giroud. France should sign Benzema.

You can tell when it's an international break. My TL is full of people slagging Giroud off in French. The rest of the time it's in English
