Wenger oversaw his final home game as Arsenal manager today, with the Gunners thumping Burnley 5-0 at the Emirates.
Giroud was sold by Arsenal back in January with the striker joining Chelsea….
The Frenchman netted the winner as the Blues revived their dreams of a top four finish to consign Liverpool to a 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.
And the Chelsea hitman has lauded Wenger, praising him for all his hard work at Arsenal.
“Arsene Wenger deserves a great tribute for all he has achieved in his Arsenal career,” he said.
“I hope he finds a new challenge too, because I know he is still hungry to win competitions.
“I just want to pay tribute to him.”
Meanwhile, Wenger has thanked Arsenal fans for their years of support and urged them to provide backing to his successor.
“I would like to thank everyone at the club who makes this club so special,” he said.
“This group of players has special quality, not only on the pitch, but off it too. Support them next season, because they deserve it.
“I will miss you. Thank you for being such an important part of my life. I hope to see you soon.
“Thank you for having me for such a long time but above all, I’m like you – I’m an Arsenal fan.”
Wenger leaves Arsenal after 22 years, during which the Frenchman won three Premier League titles.
