Clichy says Giroud needs to leave Chelsea

Former Arsenal fullback Gael Clichy says Olivier Giroud needs to leave Chelsea.

Clichy, currently a free agent, knows all the debate around Giroud and his place in France's Euros squad for next summer.

He told Stadium Astro: "It's been a few months, a few years, that we have heard the same discourse around Giroud, that he is not necessary, not good enough, that he does not play enough, that he will not be in the national squad.

"All these questions, these questions, have been settled by Giroud himself.

"If the coach says he needs playing time to go to the Euros, you must go in that direction and find a place where you're going to play."
