Giroud: I had a better time at Chelsea than Arsenal

France striker Oliver Giroud has claimed he had a better time at Chelsea than Arsenal having featured for both clubs.

In a TalkSport’s breakfast show on Tuesday, the AC Milan striker pointed out that his time at Stamford Bridge was the best because he won titles with the team.

“[I spent] three seasons-and-a-half there [at Chelsea]. I had an amazing time at Arsenal but [at Chelsea] I can say even more because I won the big titles," Giroud said.

The striker further stated that it was difficult for him to leave the club after it became apparent that he would not get more playing time following the arrival of Timo Werner.

“It was emotionally difficult to leave when I left Montpellier and Arsenal, but even more tough [at Chelsea] because I didn’t play the last three months so it was evidence for me to leave and go for another challenge.

“I felt frustrated a little bit to not play the last three months because I contributed well to the Champions League success by finishing top scorer for the team. But what can I say? We were so successful and I am so pleased with the FA Cup, Europa League, and Champions League. I scored a few important goals," he added.
