Arsenal to put on open top bus parade for Olivier Giroud’s Puskas Award

"Look, there's no way we're going to be winning anything else this season," one fan said.

Arsenal are in talks with local authorities to parade Olivier Giroud’s Puskas Award in an open top bus parade, it has been revealed.

The Gunners striker picked up the illustrious gong in last night’s FIFA The Best award ceremony, and plans are already afoot to display the prize around North London.

Officials at the club denied it was an overblown diversion tactic to distract Gunners fans from their on-field form.

Open top bus operator Lee Satchell revealed the wheels were already in motion to parade the small trophy around the streets of Islington.

He said: “I’m sure Arsene Wenger thinks of the Puskas Award as being as big of a trophy as the Champions League, or finishing in fourth place.

“It’s only right that the award is given the full treatment, and I’m not saying that because I’ll earn some serious cash from putting it on.

“Currently it might just be Giroud on the top deck on his own, but Wenger might join him.”

Satchell added: “It really depends on if Arsene’s got anything else on. Literally anything else on.”

Another fan, who wanted to remain anonymous, added: “Look fam, there’s no way we’re going to win anything else this season, so we may as well do this while we can.”
