Giroud admits major frustration since arrival at Chelsea

Date published: Friday 23rd March 2018 10:39

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has admitted that he has not scored enough goals since his arrival at Stamford Bridge.

The Frenchman made the January move across London, leaving Arsenal to swap red for blue, but has scored just one goal since his move.

Giroud has admitted that this tally must improve, but he is not panicking yet about a lack of production.

“I’m happy with how I’ve adapted, the welcome I got and my relationship with my team-mates,” he told L’Equipe.

“But I should have had more goals. I’m very attached to statistics and I remain stuck at one goal and three assists in five starts. It’s clear that’s not enough. But the content of my game is very encouraging.

“You have to be demanding of yourself. If I signed for Chelsea, it was to experience a new challenge. I knew there was going to be a lull. When you sign like that in January, it’s never easy because you have to acclimatise yourself to the team.

“But I wanted to be ready straight away, even though I was coming back from six weeks of injury. It was a little paradoxical.

“The coach started me in the second game and made me comfortable. It went very well. It’s true I played some poor matches, but the content of my game has been very encouraging.”
