In January, Olivier Giroud exchanged Arsenal for Chelsea, who reportedly paid seventeen million euros for rush hour. At the Gunners he was predominantly a bankitter in the first half of the season and after the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang he drew his conclusions. The Frenchman is happy with the transition to Chelsea.
It’s been a while since I played regularly and that’s why I had to take a step forward,”says Giroud talking to the Daily Mirror,” I needed a new challenge and Chelsea was the perfect club for me. It is a Premier League club, but above all a club that has won more titles in the past ten years than any other club. It is really a huge club and I am happy to be able to continue my career here “.
I have had wonderful years at Arsenal, but now I am ready for a new chapter in my career. Now I focus 100% on my performance here “, continues the French striker,” I am happy to be able to play in the Champions League and the FA Cup again. Major competitions are coming, against Barcelona, Manchester City and Manchester United, so we need a lot of confidence.
