Wenger and Giroud with monthly awards

Arsenal duo Arsene Wenger and Oliver Giroud wn the best player and manager awards for March in the Premier League.

Despite being knocked out from the Champions League against AS Monaco the Gunners enjoyed a good winning spell in the Premier League which allowed them to build on their 3rd position in the league table making it very close to another qualification for the European biggest competition for next season.

After the awards ceremony Wenger told the press:

“You just focus on the next game and it reminds you that you have done well in the last month, but you focus on the next one. 

“Winning is a mixture of quality and disappointment because we have gone out of the Champions league and that was a disappointment, but overall we are on a strong run in the Premier League and the FA Cup so it is mixed.”

Giroud added:

“After the Champions League I was really pleased to score and bounce back and come back stronger.

“I don’t like when I miss a game and I want to show my strength and character. I needed to score straight away after the (Monaco) game to keep confidence and to help the team to reach our target in the Premier League.”

Arsenal will face Liverpool in their next Premier League game at Emirates.
