French striker, Olivier Giroud says he is ready to remain at the club and fight for a place rather than moving to Marseille.
Giroud returned to training on Monday after an extended break following his World Cup triumph and came as a 68th-minute substitute in Chelsea’s pre-season win against Lyon on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge.
The former Arsenal player who joined Chelsea in the January transfer window while speaking after the game against Lyon said he is not ready to leave the club as he is very much happy there.
He said, “No, I am happy here at Chelsea. I just arrived a few months ago and am just starting to settle well.
“I think we did a good end to the season even if we didn’t finish in the top four. We are hoping to have a great season for the fans and I’m looking forward to the first game.
“I still have one year to go with Chelsea plus maybe another one. I’m going to discuss that with the club at the right time. There is no rush. I just need to prepare well and be ready as soon as possible for the team.
“But the most important thing is to open a new page with our club and to be ready to give everything for the club.”
Eden Hazard, N’golo Kante, Gary Cahill all came on as a substitute.
