Olivier Giroud backs Antonio Conte amid Laurent Blanc speculations

by -

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has plenty of respect for current manager Antonio Conte as the Italian was the one who signed him on Deadline Day in January.

The Frenchman joined from Arsenal on a permanent move scoring twice in the FA Cup against Hull City and Southampton.

Giroud rimained coy when asked about new potential Chelsea manager Laurent Blanc: “I do not know at all” he said.

“I hear things being said, but as long as it’s speculation, we do not know, we’ll see”.

“Blanc knows me, he trained me, but it is Antonio Conte who made me come to Chelsea”.

“Antonio Conte is under contract, I do not and will not talk about a new coach.”
