ARSENAL’S FRENCH STRIKER Olivier Giroud has apologised after a newspaper alleged that he had an extra-marital affair.

The Sun on Sunday claimed that Giroud spent a night in a hotel with lingerie model Celia Kay prior to Arsenal’s 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League earlier this month.

The article was accompanied by a photograph, reportedly taken by Kay, which apparently showed Giroud in his underwear in a hotel room.

Giroud, 27, is Arsenal’s first-choice centre-forward and is also a key player for the France national side.

He was named on the substitutes bench for Arsenal’s 2-1 win at home to Liverpool in the FA Cup on Sunday and came on as an 88th-minute substitute for Yaya Sanogo.

Speaking after the game, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said that the club would address the matter behind closed doors.

He has made a statement and for the rest, we’ll deal with it internally,” he told journalists at the Emirates Stadium.

“I don’t think there’s much more to add to that because I want to respect his privacy as well.”
