Giroud - Elneny is a complete player

Olivier Giroud says that Mohamed Elneny is “a complete player”.

The Egypt international has been training with his new Arsenal team-mates this week after completing his move from FC Basel on Thursday.


Elneny has made a positive impression on Giroud, who is confident he will adapt well to the unique demands of English football.


“I’ve trained with him and he’s a good player, very talented but first of all he is a good guy - I think he will settle well into the team,” Giroud told Arsenal Player.

“I think he’s basically a box-to-box midfielder, so he can attack and defend, run a lot and has good power and technique. He is quite a complete player.

“It always takes time to adapt to English football because there is a lot of intensity, it is very physical and even tactically [you must get used to it] - but I think Premier League football will suit him well.”
