Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jun 2, 2020 2:51 pm

Olivier Giroud signed an extension with Chelsea due the uncertainty on the market because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Giroud almost left the club in January and was still expected to leave in the summer with Inter Milan mentioned as a possibility. 

\"I simply seized my opportunity and I repaid the faith that the manager had shown in me,\" he told the club\'s website. \"That\'s why the club ultimately offered me the chance to continue my time at Chelsea and I accepted immediately because I like it here. I want to keep winning trophies and I want to continue to show the manager that he can count on me.

\"Plus, with the whole coronavirus lockdown situation, I didn\'t really feel comfortable with the idea of moving abroad and uprooting my family. I think a lot about our quality of life and we have a great setup here. I think a lot about my family now.\"
