Olivier Giroud Wants To Win Premier League Title And Admits He’s Jealous Of Chelsea Team-Mates Who’ve Done It Before

Olivier Giroud admits his last dream in professional football is to win the Premier League

Olivier Giroud has not given up on his dream of finally adding the Premier League title to his honours list.

The France striker joined the Blues in January and has already added another FA Cup to his trophy haul.

But the 32-year-old covets the Premier League above all else, even the Champions League.

‘I prefer to be at a big club rather than playing every week in a less prestigious team and I still have targets’, he told The Guardian.

‘To win a Premier League is my last dream as a footballer, maybe more than winning a Champions League, because I know how tough it is to win this league.

‘I have team-mates here who have won it, so I’m a bit jealous. I want to make it happen.

‘Look, I know we lost at Wolves but we beat Manchester City, so don’t count on me to give up on that dream just yet. I don’t want to end with any regrets.’

Giroud sealed an £18m move to Stamford Bridge in January after six years at Arsenal but never won the league, only coming close with a second-place finish in 2016.

Since joining Chelsea the French forward has 10 goals in 36 games, and scored a free-kick in the 2-2 Europa League draw away at Vidi on Thursday.
