Chelsea future needs resolving - Giroud

17th April 2019, 20:59 by Tom Hill

Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud says that he may leave the club this summer after growing frustrated at Stamford Bridge.

The Chambery-born ace has had to play second fiddle this season, with Alvaro Morata and Gonzalo Higuain in front of him in the pecking order at different stages of the season.

Giroud has managed to make 24 appearances but the majority of those have been off the bench for the Blues.

His contract expires at the end of the season but he now admits he needs his future resolving by the end of the campaign.

He told reporters: "Trust me I am very frustrated when I am not on the pitch but I don't want to show it.

"You need to keep that frustration and transform it into positive energy. Trust me I'm not happy to play the second role. Next year I will need to have a more important role to play."
