France international Olivier Giroud has said that he has the ability to play at the highest level for a few more years and he would not hesitate to leave Chelsea, should he continue to struggle for gametime. The 33-year-old has been confined to a bench role during the early stages of the campaign with Tammy Abraham regarded as the undisputed first-choice striker under Frank Lampard.
Despite this, Giroud has continued to remain a regular presence for France at the international level and he has recently been in good form with goals in successive European qualifiers. Speaking to reporters, Giroud said that he has no regrets over the decision to leave the Gunners for playing time and he could follow the same trend at Chelsea, if his prospects of regular first-team football remain slim.
