EPL: Olivier Giroud reveals why he signed a new contract with Chelsea



Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, has revealed why he extended his contract with the club.

According to him effects of the coronavirus pandemic across Europe influenced his decision to sign a new contract extension with the club.

The France international signed a new deal with Chelsea that will keep him at the West London club until the end of the 2020-21 season.

“I simply seized my opportunity, and I repaid the faith that the manager, Frank Lampard, had shown in me,” Giroud told Chelsea’s website on Monday night.

“That is why the club ultimately offered me the chance to continue my time at Chelsea, and I accepted because I like it here.

“I want to keep winning trophies, and I want to continue to show Lampard that he can count on me.

“Plus, with the whole coronavirus lockdown situation, I did not feel comfortable with the idea of moving abroad and uprooting my family.

“I think a lot about our quality of life and we have a great setup here.

“I think a lot about my family now.”
