Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard has opened up on the importance of their attacking French talent. Chelsea have been in a sensational form recently as they've won their last five games in all competitions. The game against Newcastle showed Chelsea are in pole position to challenge for the Premier league title this season. After losing out on three successive seasons, it looks more likely to win or get close to winning the league this season.
Chelsea splashed a lot of cash on the signings of Ziyech, Werner, Havertz, Chilwell, and Mendy. With those new additions, it is expected that some first team player would need to create space for those new players to thrive. That is the case right now, with Timo Werner in the squad, Giroud or Tammy Abraham is bound to be affected. However, it turns out to be Olivier Giroud. The Frenchman has started just one game this season and it all came in a league clash with Tottenham.
It's so frustrating for Giroud whose quality can't be underemphasized. For a player who is regular for his national team, it's not befitting to be at the bench every week at the club side.
Frank Lampard has reacted to the situation of Giroud in his latest Press conference. Lampard says, "We just hope he stays beyond the next transfer window. He is a very important and we really need him to stay".
I guess Lampard is right about this and Chelsea fans will all hope the sensational attacker stays put at the club.
