Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud has revealed his thoughts on Blues future after outcry by the Frenchman’s agent suggests the 34-year-old may finally be on his exit from Stamford Bridge this winter.
Giroud was Chelsea’s quadruple hero on Wednesday night as the Blues dismantled Sevilla 0-4 at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to ensure a top placed finish, but is still unsettled at Stamford Bridge having endured a sparing number of features this season and finding himself third in the pecking order behind Abraham and Timo Werner.
This is of course distasteful for the Frenchman’s agent Michael Manuello, whom has openly expressed displeasure at his clients back seat role at Chelsea this term and suggested the World Cup winner’s days at Stamford Bridge are numbered.
With the January transfer window open in a matter of weeks, Olivier Giroud has disclosed his readiness to making a decisive decision over his future after critical conversations with France head coach, Didier Deschamps regarding his prospects of making Les Blues squad for the Euro 2021.
According to the former Arsenal man, he’s received a charge from Deschamps on the need for more play time this season to stand a chance of the French squad.
“If I play a bit more, I have a good chance to be fit and ready for the Euros. I had a conversation with Deschamps and he said if the situations stayed like that, I will have to take a decision in January. I am pretty sure I can get some more game time and stay at Chelsea” he disclosed to TeamSport.
A critical decision for Frank Lampard to make in weeks coming is ensuring a reasonable increment in play time for the 34-year-old, with hopes of keeping him in West London at least till the end of the current campaign after a glimpse of how handy he can be for the Blues on Wednesday night.
