Giroud opens up and issues Chelsea warning to new Blues signing Timo Werner
Olivier Giroud has insisted he will not give up his starting spot in Chelsea’s XI without a fight in light of Timo Werner’s arrival at Chelsea.
Chelsea managed to beat off some of Europes biggest clubs and sign the brilliant Timo Werner for just £54 million this summer, with many believing that he has been signed by the club to be the number one striker at Stamford Bridge.
Tammy Abraham has been seen as the future of Chelsea and before the coronavirus outbreak stopped football, was the main man at Chelsea, but since the re-start, Lampard has decided to use Giroud on a more frequent basis.
And the Frenchman has looked impressive for Chelsea with his goals helping the club reach the FA Cup final and also helping the Blues get back inside those top four spots and get Champions League qualification
But Giroud has now warned Werner that he will not give up that starting spot at Chelsea without a fight, Giroud told L’Equipe: “When the teams play a defensive way against us, it’s not bad to have a tall striker like me that can make the link.
“But I am not naive. Werner hasn’t been recruited to sit on the bench.
“But I will do everything I can to give headaches to the coach when it comes to making his choice.”
Look, it will be a very good thing for Chelsea boss Lampard that he has three strikers that will all be working their arses off to try and be the clubs number one striker, and it will definitely help the players keep working harder on that pitch.
It will be interesting to see who will be the clubs number one striker next season, but going by the form shown by Giroud over the past few weeks, he will be very hard to shift in the early weeks of the season.
