Arsenal winger Gervinho is confident that it is only matter of time before new signing Olivier Giroud will find his goal scoring touches for his club.
He further feels that life hasn’t stopped at Arsenal after the departure of talismanic skipper Robin van Persie. He insists that despite missing few good chances in the opening few matches; Giroud is not worried by the absence of goals.
Gervinho, the former Lille player, said to Daily Mirror “I hope the fans show patience towards Giroud and also look at his overall contribution to the team.
“We must all support him, because there’s big pressure.
“But there’s no doubt in my mind that the goals will come. I am totally convinced.
“To substitute a player like van Persie who scored nearly 40 goals in a season is not easy.
“Giroud couldn’t score goals in the opening games but that’s to be expected because it will take him time to adapt in the system and style.”
He recalled his own problems during his early days at the club and is hopeful that manager Wenger will continue to give Giroud the backing and support he needs.
“It took me a long time to adjust so I know what it is like,” added the Ivorian. “But Wenger will give Giroud confidence because he believes in his ability and quality.
“A squad like Arsenal’s needs quality players at this level and they must be allowed to succeed without pressure.
“I talk every day with Olivier and he’s not been worried by the absence of goals in his first matches. It’s just a matter of time.”
