Arsenal star makes Chelsea admission: I could play under Conte

ARSENAL star Olivier Giroud believes he is able to adapt his playing style to play under any manager.

The Frenchman has been in and out of Arsenal’s starting XI this season with Arsene Wenger rotating his squad throughout the campaign.

Giroud has netted 12 goals in all competitions for the Gunners while battling star man Alexis Sanchez to lead the line for the north London outfit.

The 30-year-old recently revealed he has not been afraid to question Wenger about his decisions to pick him for some games and not others.

And he reckons he would be able to play to his own strengths under the likes of Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone.

Asked if he could enjoy himself playing under the direction of any one of the three passionate bosses he told French publication L’Equipe: “As an idea, why not?

“Each experience is good to live through. I would adapt.

“At Montpellier in 2011-12, René Girard was of the fighting mentality, of a player who never gave up, of open-mindedness, of fight. A barker.

“We were the champions of France with him.”

Giroud scored twice in France’s 3-1 win over Luxembourg last night in their latest World Cup qualifier.
