Everybody gets criticised one day.
— Olivier Giroud
You always have to work hard and keep the faith.
My ambition is to win some trophies. That's why I am playing football.
I am a competitor, and I want to win again and again.
It's nice to be cheered, but I'll always have a good attitude on the pitch.
I work hard in training to be ready.
The main thing is to work hard. When you work hard, you'll be in the team. It's as simple as that. And that's what I'm going to do, put my head down, work hard, and see where it takes me.
I've always been lucky enough to have made the right decisions, if I can say that. I've always felt that I've had good fortune in that way.
Why did I choose Arsenal rather than Chelsea? Because it is a club I love, and I thought it would be easier for my adaptation.
I know when I am good and when I am not good. I don't need anyone to tell me.
Chelsea is a strong team defensively, and they are quite efficient up front with great players, so I think I will enjoy it.
Diego Costa doesn't show any emotion. I am more emotional. So I have learned to control my emotions.
I don't have an inferiority complex.
That's why I love the Premier League - it's the best championship; it is very hard.
It was the force of the ball. It made my foot bone and ankle come together and cracked. I thought I had just twisted my ankle, but it was a clear fracture.
Starting games with the French national team helped me bounce back when it was getting difficult with Arsenal.
Even if we don't play fantastically, with good passing and precision and finesse, the most important thing is to win.
As a striker, what you got used to on a daily basis, it is to be applauded when you score goals. When the opposite happens, it's difficult.
You have to have faith in your own qualities; that is part of being a footballer: being strong in your head. That is more than half of the quality you need to be a football player.
The Champions League is massive for a football player. There is nothing above it when you're playing for a club.
I know too well how much I am going to miss football after my career for me to put up my own barriers.
I don't want to big myself up, but goals like mine leave a mark on history because they're rare.
There is always room for improvement, but I am happy with what I am doing on the pitch.
One thing is sure: I really enjoyed my five years at Arsenal.
When you make the decision to join a great club, you know there is already a great forward.
It's nice to be at the top, but the most difficult thing is to stay at the top.
It's important to keep improving.
For me the relationship you have with the coach is very important.
When I put my head in my hands after missing a chance, that annoys the coaches a little.
I wanted to stay in the Premier League, and Chelsea was a great opportunity for me.
Football is very hard, and people see only the nice part of the job.
If you are good on the pitch, good in training, you will have your chance. I'm not worried about my place.
When you are a striker, you need to give a lot of effort for the team, to keep the opponent under pressure, to press them, to win the ball fast - that's what I try to do to help the team. After that, I try to make some goals.
Fortunately, I'm OK with my body. I try to take care of it. I played a lot of games over a season for several years, so, touch wood, I will stay fit and healthy.
Arsene Wenger gave me the possibility to bounce back.
As for myself, in sport you have to question yourself every week and be ready in your head, and you have to be at 100% of determination if you want to keep going and win games; you cannot afford to be at 80% or 90%.
I love London! But the thing I love the most is the Premier League.
I always give everything for my team.
If I play, I try to give my best for the team.
I always work on my mind and my game.
The Premier League is my main target.
Arsenal is a great club - the facilities are wonderful - but I feel it is a club that takes big care before signing a player, notably considering human values.
I have created a shell around me, in the good and the bad moments.
I feel really good at Arsenal.
I think communication is massive in football and in all sports in general.
When people are talking about a player to come and take your place, you take it personally because it's your position.
The fact is that the coach wanted to recruit a new striker, and with Aubameyang's signing at Arsenal, there were three top strikers, and that's why I decided to leave.
All of my career, I have been - how can I say this? - I have been through certain difficulties, and I have always tried to make it motivation to get better and better.
I try to be a leader on the pitch rather than off it.
Second seasons are always better. In the first year, I felt a little bit of pressure. Maybe sometimes I didn't play naturally. I didn't feel relaxed on the pitch when I was ready to try something. It's complicated to explain.
