Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has opened up on losing his place to youngster Tammy Abraham under new boss Frank Lampard.
Giroud has lost his place to Abraham and has been playing as the second striker most of the time this season. The Frenchman has hailed Abraham for his impressive run of form as he yet again scored for Chelsea during the 2-1 win over Lille in the Champions League on Wednesday night. And now the former Arsenal man says he is prepared to wait for his chance.
"I'm fine, I've had hard times. Now it's not the ideal situation," he told L'Equipe when asked about his current predicament at Stamford Bridge.
"At this moment, little Tammy is walking on water. Listen, it's hard to drop a striker when he's successful. I am patient. I work in training. You have to keep a good state of mind. We have a lot of games to play."
The 22-year-old has already netted eight goals in all competitions this season after returning from his loan spell at Aston Villa.
