For both club and country, Olivier Giroud hasn’t really gotten the admiration that his contributions deserve.

Giroud remains one of the most underrated strikers in the world, but he doesn’t mind the disrespect, as he is keen on delivering at all times.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, everybody gets disrespected,” Giroud told Stadium Astro.

“There is nobody who will be praised by everybody. You know it is part football, part of the game.

“Sometimes people want other players to play. I understand that with that experience and I’m okay with that.

“Maybe sometimes I am underrated but the most important thing is the numbers. For a striker that is what matters.

“As long as I am efficient for the club team and Les Bleus and making my family proud, the rest I concede.”
