The previous France international left-back, who spent numerous years in the Premier League, thinks the accomplished striker necessitates another adventure.

Olivier Giroud

would score for


if the Blues gave him a chance, says

Gael Clichy

, with the France international striker being encouraged to proceed onward in January and discover the open doors he merits. 

The World Cup-winning frontman was allowed only three minutes off the seat in the 2-0 success over Newcastle on Saturday, an overall of 36 minutes gameplay in the current Premier League. 

Giroud needs goals and games on the off chance that he is to remain some portion of the national squad set-up under Didier Deschamps, with

Les Bleus

' manager acknowledging so.

The Ex-Arsenal striker admitted that he will weigh up his choices in the January transfer window, with Clichy telling the seasoned player to leave Stamford Bridge.

“It’s been a few months, a few years, that we hear the same speech around Giroud, that he is not needed, he is not good enough, if he doesn’t play enough he will not get into the national team." the former




defender told Stadium Astro.

“All those questions, all those question marks, have been solved and resolved by Giroud himself.

“Give him time and he will actually score goals. When I say give him time, I’m not asking to give him 10 games in a row to get his first goal. Give him 20 minutes here, half-an-hour there, 40 minutes here, cup game, Champions League game, he will score goals and he will show people that that kind of profile in the team, within the group, is essential.

“You want players that can create something, but you also want players that can hold the ball and score goals.

“If you look at where he is in terms of goalscoring for France, I will not name all the names but he’s second and seven goals behind [all-time leading scorer] Thierry Henry, and this for me is enough. That is the answer to everybody telling me that he shouldn’t be there.

“So obviously if the manager of the national team is saying that he needs game time to go to the Euros, well if you look at that direction, you need to go and you need to find a place where you will play.

“Again, we’ve heard that many times in his career, many times, he’s always been there and scored goals, and he’s always kind of put people straight in terms of what he’s doing on the football pitch, or in this club, or in the national team. For me that’s a great example of attitude and commitment.”
