The Frenchman Olivier Giroud came to Arsenal with a reputation of being a pin-up in his native country, and has reinforced the image of a ladies man with revelations of late night trysts with beautiful women before important Arsenal games.
Now he has admitted that he more likely to be known as a pinup like David Beckham or David Ginola than a top striker like Ibrahimovich! Giroud told Sport&Style in France: “I was sometimes called ‘the French Beckham.’
“It’s nice. He built a very popular image among women.
“He has a good rating even if he made mistakes in his life. He is a fashion icon too.
