Giroud buoyed by Henry link

26 November 2012 14:37

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud says it would be a 'great joy' to play alongside club great Thierry Henry.

The 35-year-old Henry linked up with his former club last season on a two-month temporary deal, notching two goals in seven appearances, and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has hinted at a repeat this season despite the MLS side's sporting director Andy Roxburgh threatening to block any move.

Even so, Giroud is keen to link up with the World Cup winner.

"(Henry) misses the enthusiasm around the Premier League," Giroud told L'Equipe. "But he didn't tell me if he will be back. It would be great joy to play with him.

"When you come into a new club, there is a time to adapt. Even Thierry Henry experienced it. If I could achieved just half of what he achieved."

Giroud initially struggled in front of goal following his close-season move from Montpellier, but revealed his joy at his new surrounds, saying he has taken a liking to London.

He added: "I love that city (London), it is eccentric, and so cosmopolitan. There are so many things to do. You can never be bored."
