Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has said that he might need to leave the Premier League club in a bid to stay in the French team ahead of the 2020 edition of the European Championship.
Giroud hinted at a Chelsea exit during his latest interview as monitored by popular English news outlet Metro.
According to him, he’s not happy at the lack of playing time at Chelsea under new manager Frank Lampard and that the solution could be to leave the club when the winter transfer window reopens in the New Year.
Giroud spoke ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifier at home to Turkey which ended in a score draw.
Olivier Giroud came off the bench to give France the lead on 76 minutes thus putting them well on course for qualification to Euro 2020.
The qualification was then halted by a late equaliser from Kaan Ayhan for Turkey who maintained their position as leaders in Group H.
Olivier Giroud has had to endure lack of playing time at Chelsea this season with new manager Frank Lampard turning to younger players to move the club forward.
England international Tammy Abraham has led the line for Chelsea this season and Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi has been his deputy for the larger part of the season with Giroud now the third choice striker.
