Chelsea striker Giroud: I do not accept this situation

Olivier Giroud admits he's unhappy with his situation at Chelsea.

The France international, who scored the only goal in Friday's win over Iceland, has hinted at talks with Frank Lampard but insisted he would never seek to insult his manager.

"Accept it? No, I do not accept it," he told Le Pelerin.

"You do not have to be fatalistic in certain situations. I have always been respectful and humble. Even if I do not agree with the coach, I do not criticise him.

"But in myself, I cannot accept it because I know what I'm worth on a pitch. Last year, when I felt that I deserved to play, I asked the coach for explanations."
