Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has made it clear that he is tired of sitting on the bench at Stamford Bridge and could face the exit doors this summer if the situation does not improve.
Giroud has been forced to settle for a reserve role at the Blues this term under Maurizio Sarri, but has made the most of his chances in the Europa League.

"But I'm still hungry and I know how much I will miss football after my career. I want more and more. I think I have a few nice years in front of me,'' Giroud explained according to UK Sun.
