- Olivier Giroud showers praises on Chelsea new boss Frank Lampard
- The Blues legend signed a three year deal to replace Sarri at Stamford Bridge this summer
- Lampard was in charge of Derby County for just one season before returning to his former club
Olivier Giroud has lauded Chelsea chiefs for the appointment of club legend Frank Lampard as the new coach of the club.
The 41-year-old succeeded former boss Maurizio Sarri after signing a three year deal with the Premier League club this summer.
Lampard recorded his first victory in charge of the Blues in their 4-0 win over Saint Patrick's Athletic FC last weekend.
Giroud was introduced in the second half to score brace in the game and the Frenchman is full of praise for the tactician.
"I like his energy and desire to always improve and win," Giroud, speaking to Radio 5 Live Sports Extra, said. "We've been training very hard with high intensity."
Ahead of the coming season, Giroud believes the Blues legend can help improve the quality of the team despite their transfer ban.
The Europa League winners are currently serving a two transfer window ban and will not be able to sign a player until next summer.
Chelsea visit Old Trafford to battle Manchester United in their Premier League opener on August 11, and the World Cup winning striker believes the ban will help the young players improve.
"I think he [Lampard] is the right person. He is basically a Chelsea legend," added Giroud.
"We all believe in his quality to improve the team and with the transfer ban it's a good opportunity for the young players to show what they can do. Now we're excited to play the first league game."
Lampard signed a three-year deal to take over at the club where he spent 13 years playing in midfield having spent just one season in charge of Derby County.

Meanwhile, the Special One's decision to reject a move to Asia could be because he is targeting a possible job in Germany’s Bundesliga.
