Olivier Giroud will remain at Stamford Bridge
In a recent chat with the club’s website, Olivier Giroud said that what triggered him to sign a contract extention with Chelsea is the effects of coronavirus pandemic that
Influenced his decision.
Back in January, Giroud almost left the Blues for a potential move to Inter Milan, but the club’s failure to find a replacement meant he stayed for the final six months of his existing deal.
“I simply seized my opportunity and I repaid the faith that the
manager had shown in me,” he said. “That’s
why the club ultimately offered me the chance to continue my
time at Chelsea and I accepted immediately because I like it
here. I want to keep winning trophies and I want to continue to
show the manager that he can count on me.
“Plus, with the whole coronavirus lockdown situation, I didn’t
really feel comfortable with the idea of moving abroad and
uprooting my family. I think a lot about our quality of life and
we have a great setup here. I think a lot about my family now.“
Giroud, who could still leave Chelsea at the end of the season with Inter favourites for his signature said he wanted to leave the club in January due to lack of playing, but he only remain at the club because the manager told him to stay.
