Former Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has sent a message to Chelsea teammates and fans on his return to Stamford Bridge this evening when his AC Milan take on the Blues in the UEFA Champions League group fixture.
“I told my teammates right now when we were walking around the pitch that I’m very proud to come here with the great Milan to play in the Champions League, to play in our colours and to defend our badge.
“I hope to have a good welcome because I spent nice three-a-half years here with trophies. They changed the manager so I don’t really know how they are going to play. I could have helped more if it was Tuchel!”

Blues fans will be wishing Giroud well for the campaign, just not tonight!
The France striker made a total of 119 appearances for Chelsea and scored a total of 39 goals out of which 6 were recorded at the Champions League.
Tonight he will face his former teammates, will he replicate what he’s known for at Stamford Bridge?
