Speaking with French radio station RTLChelsea‘s striker Olivier Giroud admitted he is not happy about how things are going for him at Stamford Bridge.

Giroud started just one of the Blues’ last 16 Premier League games: “Of course it is frustrating. Today, I feel like there is no competition since January”. Giroud said. “It is like that, I know that I will only play in the Europa League and I will try to do everything I can to be as effective and decisive as possible for the team.”

Then, at the end of the season, Chelsea’s striker can decide to leave both the club and England: “The future could be hectic this summer,” Giroud went on. “I am not scared of going down a level to have more playing time. It could be that I end my career in France.”

But you know sometimes he is hard, but I try to do my best.”

Speaking to ESPN BrazilChelsea midfielder Jorginho revealed once again why during last summer transfer window he chose the Blues rather than Manchester City.

Maurizio Sarri‘s appointment on the Blues’ bench played, obviously a crucial role as the Italian manager trained Jorginho also at SS Napoli.

There are a lot of things behind a negotiation process”. Jorginho said. “I believe Sarri’s arrival played a big part on it. And there’s also the greatness of Chelsea, such a big club. So these factors helped me making my mind”.

The Italian midfielder also admitted his relationship with Sarri is very good:  “Yes, it’s pretty good. He’s always bantering, joking with me”. Jorginho added.

As we wrote yesterday, Nice manager Patrick Vieira gave midfielder Jean-Michael Seri permission to reach London.

It seemed Seri was very close to a move to Chelsea, but today it emerged the French club have agreed a fee not with the Blues, but with Fulham who will pay £18m.

The player has already applied for a work visa, but he has yet to agree a deal with Fulham, so Chelsea can still hope to make a better offer to convince Seri.
