Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud believes that the support he has received from the fans has helped him shine.

The Frenchman believes that he feeds off the crowd and calls on Gunners fans to support him during this difficult spell for the club.

He told the club’s official website: “I’m a striker and a striker needs to have a good atmosphere.

“You have to keep confident. The atmosphere around you and the support of fans, it makes me feel better and better. I feel very emotive and proud to play for Arsenal.

“I heard the fans’ song for me when I came here for the first time, I heard this song and it made me want to die on the pitch for the fans.”
