Olivier Giroud has revealed why his move from Arsenal to Chelsea has left the Frenchman ‘frustrated’ (via The Mirror).
It’s still a little strange to see Olivier Giroud in a Chelsea shirt after he spent so many years at Arsenal.
The Frenchman made the move across London on deadline day and has made eight Premier League appearances for the Blues since then.
However, the 31-year-old is yet to find the back of the net in the league and it seems that the lack of goals is troubling him.
“I am happy with my adaptation, the welcome I received, the relationship on the ground with my partners but, that could have, it should have, been more goals,” said Giroud whose sole goal for the Blues came in the FA Cup.
“In terms of statistics, I am very attached to this, I remain stuck at one goal and three assists. It is sure that it is not enough, but in time I will do it.
“You have to be demanding with yourself. If I signed to Chelsea, it’s to have a new challenge. I knew there was going to be a wait.
“When you sign like that in January, it’s never easy because you have to acclimatize to your team. But I really wanted to be ready right away, even though I was coming back from almost six weeks of injury.
“It was a little paradoxical.”
Olivier Giroud appeared to be a good signing for Chelsea and, hopefully, that will prove true. If he continues to play in the Premier League then, eventually, the goals will come.
