France international Olivier Giroud who currently plays for Chelsea in the Premier League has told Frank Lampard to give him more active playing time this term at Stamford Bridge.
This latest development came after the Frenchman netted four goals for Chelsea in their impressive victory over Sevilla in the Champions League.
It was an incredible day for Olivier Giroud as the striker was also hailed by fans on social media after the Champions League encounter.
The former Arsenal star has now explained that he wants more games so as to help him get the chance to make French squad for the coming EURO championship according to UK Sun.
“I am ready to fight until the end. But obviously to be happy I need to be a little bit more on the pitch.
“I have a good chance to be ready for the Euros if I play more than in the beginning of the season.
“I had a conversation with France manager Didier Deschamps and he said if the situation stayed like that, you will have to make a decision in January.
"But I’m pretty sure I can grab more game-time and stay at Chelsea because that’s what I want.''
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Olivier Giroud produced a four-star performance for Chelsea in their Champions League triumph over Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium earlier this week.
The Frenchman scored all four goals the Blues needed to progress to the next round of the competition with one game left.
He opened the scoring in the eighth minute after which he scored the remaining three goals in the second half of the encounter.
His goals against the Spanish League outfit made him the oldest player to score a hattrick in a Champions League game beating Cristiano Ronaldo to the feat.
The Portuguese forward achieved the feat when he was 34 years and 35 days old but Giroud thrashed the record after scoring four goals at the age of 34 years and 63 days.
