Giroud decides to stay

Olivier Giroud has decided to stay at Chelsea and see out the rest of his contract.

The 34-year old Frenchman was widely tipped to leave the club in January, mindful of the warnings of his national team manager that he needs to be playing regular first-team football if he wants to be considered for a spot in the France squad for next summer’s European championships.

However, after his four goals against Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday, he has been told by Frank Lampard that he will his chance, even if he is not guaranteed a start every match.

The news of his change in mind will come as a disappointment to the many clubs linked with an interest in him, amongst them Inter Milan, Juventus and Inter Miami.

Giroud started and scored the equaliser as Chelsea beat Leeds United at Stamford Bridge in front of 2,000 fans on Saturday evening.
