Giroud has been a Chelsea player for three and a half years having joined Chelsea in January 2018.
Giroud's contract was to be expired at the end of the season, but his contract has been extended by a year.
Giroud would now be a Chelsea player till he is 35, and it comes as a surprise knowing that he did not get enough playing time under Thomas Tuchel towards the end of the season.
Explaining why he was handed a new deal, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said " Olivier has been a crucial part of soo many big moments for this club, from his contribution to our fa cup victory in 2018 to scoring 11 goals on the way to winning the Europa league in 2019."
" He has continued to score significant goals , and we will never forget his effort against Atletico Madrid on the way to winning the champions league this season."
“With so much to still to play for, there was only one decision we could make when we exercised the option to extend his contract back in April.”
Was Marina's decision to extend olivier Giroud's contract a good idea ?, all honest comments from fans and football lovers are welcomed, Thank you.
