Arsenal fans congratulate Giroud following Chelsea’s FA Cup win

It is incredibly unheard of for figures associated with Arsenal to congratulate Chelsea for any kind of success.

However, on Saturday evening, a large number of Gooners posted tweets praising Olivier Giroud following the Blues’ FA Cup final win over Manchester United at Wembley.

Antonio Conte’s side failed to secure a Champions League position via the Premier League table this season as they finished fifth, but they ended the campaign on a high by winning a piece of silverware.

Giroud signed for the West London outfit from Arsenal in the January transfer window after falling down the pecking order under manager Arsene Wenger.

The French striker spent five-and-a-half years at the North London outfit before signing for the Blues.

In most cases, it would be a controversial switch, but it seems that any anger that Arsenal fans initially felt has dissipated.

Many even felt joy for Giroud as he lifted his fourth FA Cup – the previous three he won with the Gunners.

It was a slender victory for Chelsea as Eden Hazard’s first-half penalty against United was the difference.
