Resurgent Giroud Is A Testament That Patience And Professionalism Is Key In The World Of Football

If there has ever been a perfect example of a patient, humble and focused player, it has to be Olivier Giroud. The Frenchman started this season as Chelsea's third choice striker, behind the likes of Mitchy Batshuayi and academy graduate Tammy Abraham. But Rather than going about complaining about his the situation he found himself, Giroud bent down his head worked hard and reinvented himself. The striker all of a sudden now has the confidence of his manager Frank Lampard, and he has been repaying the faith shown in him with some very vital goals.

Giroud thanks to his hard work and perseverance now sits as the club's most favoured striker, somehow turning the narrative around and using his experience to earn his way into the first team. And with Chelsea having completed the signing of Timo Warner from Rb Leipzig, it remains to be seen how Giroud will somehow turn things in his favour next season.
