Giroud wants clarification on his Arsenal role

French striker Olivier Giroud is prepared to hold crunch discussions with manager Arsene Wenger having failed to make the starting line-up for much of the season.



The 30-year-old has been used as a regular from the substitutes bench this term with Alexis Sanchez getting the nod for the centre-forward role.

According to The Star, the former Montpellier star is worried over his current situation at the Emirates, and will seek to resolve his future with Wenger prior to the Manchester United game.

Giroud netted a second-half brace in the 4-1 thrashing of Sunderland late last month, but he is still fussed as to why he can't earn a start at the Emirates.

The France international is widely expected to start upfront against Manchester United on November 19 with Sanchez having suffered a minor muscular tear on international duty.
