Giroud promised me a goal and he scored - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says French striker Olivier Giroud told him he would score before the striker's superb overhead kick sealed a 1-0 win for Arsenal in the Europa League.
The Gunners travelled to Red Star Belgrade on Thursday and were facing a 0-0 draw against the Serbian side, but after Milan Rodic was sent off the hosts in the 80th minute, Giroud produced an acrobatic finish to seal the win for the Premier League side.
Following the win Wenger revealed that Giroud knew he was going to find the back of the net. He said “Well at some stage he came to the touchline and told me he would score," the manager revealed in his post-match press conference. I don't know [how he knew but] that's certainly no more than I did, but I think that's Olivier Giroud - he keeps belief when it's tough and that's why maybe he scores as well at moments you don't necessarily expect him to score. I believe you win when you can - you do not decide when. What is remarkable is the spirit we have shown, fighting together. They defended very well, but the goal is a consequence of us wanting to play through them.”
