The Europa League is where it shone, even though it has nine goals in nine appearances.

This included a hat-trick Thursday to help Chelsea up to the quarter-finals of the competition.

The thirty-two says he is a competitor and eager to prove that he still deserves a starting position in the team.

When asked if he was willing to remain a role player due to his advanced age, Giroud said: "No. No chance. I am a competitor.

"I'm 32 but I'm still young. I feel very good physically.

"When I do tests on the treadmill I have to say that I have one of the best tests (at the club).

"I have the motivation to move forward. Some of the guys asked me why I didn't retire with the national team after the World Cup.

"But I'm still hungry and I know how much I will miss football after my career.

"I always want more. I think I have some good year in front of me."

Giroud hopes to win more trophies after helping France lift the World Cup last summer.


The former star of the Arsenal said: "I've been through many difficult moments in my career. I just want to have fun playing soccer after winning the World Cup last summer.

"I want to play every single game and be happy on the field. But I'm not choosing the team, the manager makes some choices.

"I play in the Europa League and I'm happy to help the team get through the stages, step by step. The goal is clearly to win.

"La (Premier League) is another thing, you know?

"Now we don't know about the future – who can say? We'll see."
