Arsenal’s Champions League clash with Dinamo Zagreb was soured by a red card for their star striker… so here are the best Olivier Giroud sent off jokes.
The 28-year-old Frenchman was on the receiving end of two yellow cards, the first of which was awarded for dissent – leading some fans to think the referee had it in for Giroud.
Sure enough, one perhaps softer card later following a poor tackle, he exited the field of play.
Check out this collection of the best Olivier Giroud sent off jokes after his red card in Arsenal’s 2-1 Champions League group defeat to Dinamo Zagreb:
If only Giroud was a 14 year old clock maker this would all be different

It's a good thing Giroud has built up such a rapport with Arsenal fans. He'll need all that good will now.

Olivier Giroud sent off for a tackle on Marko Pjaca. If you're wondering who that is, he's a French striker.

I wonder if Olympiakos will appeal Giroud's red card
— RICHARD (@R_GOONER) September 16, 2015
One positive for the Arsenal fans tonight… Giroud can't play the next Champions League game.
