Olivier Giroud takes to Twitter to ask for forgiveness from wife and Arsenal

Olivier Giroud has publicly pleaded for forgiveness.
Olivier Giroud has publicly pleaded for forgiveness.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud tweeted just hours before the FA Cup tie with Liverpool to plead for forgiveness following allegations of an affair.

The French striker took the unusual step in publicly asking for forgiveness after allegations of meeting American model Celia Kay in a hotel room the night before the Gunners played Crystal Palace at the Emirates on February 2 were reported in the British press.

Giroud at first denied the encounter, but after photos emerged of the half-naked Frenchman in Kay’s room, the 27-year-old has now publicly confessed to the meeting.

He wrote, in French and English: ‘I apologise to my wife, family and friends and my manager, team-mates and Arsenal fans.

Giroud is expected to receive a heavy fine from Arsenal for breaching club curfew rules prior to a game, though the model has said that the two did not have sex.

Giroud was named on the bench by Arsene Wenger for the Liverpool clash.
