Olivier Giroud: 'No regrets over leaving Arsenal'

Olivier Giroud has insisted that he harbours no regrets over leaving Arsenal because moving to Chelsea resembled joining a bigger club.

The Frenchman, having spent five-and-a-half years at Arsenal, completed a move to Stamford Bridge in January 2018.

Under Frank Lampard, however, Giroud's opportunities have been heavily reduced due to the boss using Tammy Abraham as a first-choice forward, with the former only making two starts so far this term.

When asked about the reasons behind his decision to leave the Emirates, Giroud said: "It was not easy to leave Arsenal for Chelsea two years ago. I loved Arsenal.

"But it was a progression because Chelsea is the English club that has won the most titles, with Manchester City, in 10 years.

"I had competitors in attack – [Alvaro] Morata, [Gonzalo] Higuain, who ended up leaving. I won at the end: I played the final of the FA Cup in 2018 and the [Europa League] final in 2019."

Despite being out of favour at Chelsea, Giroud played an important role in France's 1-0 win over Iceland on Friday, scoring the only goal of the game after 66 minutes.

Lampard's side return to Premier League action with a home game against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon. body check tags ::
