They say timing is everything in football.
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud dropped an almighty bomb on Sunday afternoon as the French international striker took to Twitter to publicly announce he cheated on his wife with a glamour model.
Giroud’s public apology came just 90 minutes before Arsenal’s huge FA Cup match with Liverpool, which kicks off arguably the Gunners’ most important week of the season with Bayern Munich coming up in the Champions League on Wednesday.
No sooner had Gioud hit enter on his keyboard, Arsenal fans began fretting their season is about to implode.

Rather Giroud apologised for his miss against Utd tbh.

Will Olivier Giroud start for Arsenal today, or does he only play away from home? #afc

Good job Arsenal have lots of strikers to replace Giroud is his head is all over the place.

I just knew Olivier Giroud would be the kind of guy to wear briefs.

No-one does outrage over something that affects them in no way whatsoever quite like Twitter.

A thousand times this: “@JacobSteinberg: Who gives a fuck what Olivier Giroud gets up to in his private life.”
