Olivier Giroud has praised Tammy Abraham’s recent run of form and insists he is prepared to wait for his chance at Chelsea.
The 32-year-old has played just 191 minutes for Chelsea this season with Frank Lampard preferring Abraham as his first-choice striker.
Abraham has made an excellent start to the season and scored his eighth goal of the campaign in Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Lille in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
And when asked about his current situation at Chelsea after the match, Giroud told L’Equipe: ‘I’m fine, I’ve had hard times. Now it’s not the ideal situation.
‘At this moment, little Tammy is walking on water. Listen, it’s hard to drop a striker when he’s successful.
‘I am patient. I work in training. You have to keep a good state of mind. We have a lot of games to play.
‘Last week, I missed all three games because of a dirty virus that tied me to the bed. Now I feel much better.
‘The coach preferred to start Tammy. It’s good for the team. It makes us want to continue working and shaking up the competition.’
