Giroud insists the Frenchman is a team player.
It has been a good season for several Arsenal stars so far this term, with particularly good form being shown by Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud.
The Frenchman has shown a great touch in front of goal and has netted eight times in 15 matches in all competitions.
As well as this Giroud has also provided four assists – all in the Premier League – and insists strikers don’t have to be greedy to succeed.
“It is a quality when you are a striker to not always be greedy and when you have a team-mate well placed on the pitch, in a good position, you have to assist him,” the 27-year-old was quoted by ITV.
“Strikers are judged on their goals but we must also [provide] assists and that is what I try to do: help my team-mates.
“I feel really confident, the boss made me feel good and that is why I feel good and try to improve every day. It is all about confidence I think.”
Giroud scored 17 goals last season during the France international’s first year in England, following a transfer from Ligue 1 side Montpellier.
However, the forward was criticised for not looking sharp enough but as the player pointed out, neither did Didier Drogba or Thierry Henry when they first arrived in the Premier League.
Manager Arsene Wenger has clearly been working on improving the confidence of players such as Giroud and Ramsey and so far the tactic has been successful.
Yet a tough run of fixtures that has started with Chelsea and continues with Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United, could test their resolve.
