Olivier Giroud admits game-time disappointment and big January decision

Chelsea striker Giroud wants improved game time or will have to leave the Blues in the next transfer window.

As previously reported here on Futaa, Giroud indicated concerns over the continuously dropping minutes of play he gets at the club, though he is the number one choice for world champions France.

As a result, the 34-year-old striker is fearing for his national side place as the 2021 UEFA Euros approach closer.

“"It's worrying. I thought I still had a role to play at Chelsea but my playing time is getting reduced a lot. It's going to have to change or a decision must be made," Giroud told Telefoot.

"I am clear-headed about my situation: I will have to make a decision in January. I hope to make the right one, as I have always done,” added the former Arsenal striker.

Meanwhile, Giroud is rumoured to be the target of a few English clubs and several more in France, Spain and Italy.
