London -

Olivier Giroud lagi sip performanya di Chelsea. Pelatih Timnas Prancis, Didier Deschamp menyarankan Giroud tetap di Chelsea saja.

Olivier Giroud sempat dirumorkan bakal cabut dari Chelsea. Dirinya kalah bersaing dengan striker muda, Tammy Abraham.

Namun baru-baru ini, Olivier Giroud mampu tampil gemilang. Pekan lalu, penyerang berusia 34 tahun itu bikin empat gol ke gawang Sevilla di Liga Champions. Dilanjutkan akhir pekan kemarin, mencetak satu gol kala Chelsea kalahkan Leeds United 3-1 dalam lanjutan Liga Inggris.

Olivier Giroud pelan-pelan mendapat kepercayaan manajer Chelsea, Frank Lampard. Giroud sepertinya bakal selalu dipasang sebagai starter.

Pelatih Timnas Prancis, Didier Deschamp berkomentar soal kondisi Olivier Giroud. Tak ayal, Deschamp memang selalu memperhatikan pemainnya tersebut.

Deschamp pernah berujar, kalau Giroud disarankan pindah klub supaya jam mainnya tetap banyak. Supaya, posisi Giroud di timnas tetap aman.

Tapi sekarang, Deschamp sepertinya mau Giroud tetap bertahan di Chelsea.

"Sekarang adalah waktu yang jauh lebih membahagiakan baginya. Bagus untuknya," kata Deschamp seperti dilansir dari Mirror.

Didier Deschamp mengakui, bahwa Olivier Giroud masih bertaji. Giroud tak cuma bisa mencetak gol, namun tetap bisa memberi perbedaan di lapangan dan membantu tim untuk menang.

"Giroud cetak gol atau tidak, dirinya tetap berguna di lapangan," tegas Deschamp.

"Saya senang untuknya dan saya berharap itu bisa konsisten. Banyak orang mengkritiknya, terserah mau bilang apa," tutupnya.
