Chelsea’s 34 years old striker doesn’t want to slow down.

Oliveir Giroud

says that he is still motivated for success and he is not going to slow down because he is 34 years old.

The France international told Chelsea’s Mike’d Up Podcast:

“It’s about your motivation, what you put into your training to always stay fit, looking after your sleep, what you eat, always wanting to help the team reach the target.

“I have no doubts [about scoring goals]. Obviously, you have some periods when you score more or less but the main thing is to keep the confidence high. When you are in a difficult moment, just keep working hard in training because you don’t lose your qualities.

“Nothing gets given. In life you always have to go for wins and trophies. Football is an everlasting new beginning, that is one of my favorite sentences. You always have to go again week after week.

“I’m still very hungry. I think I can still play at the highest level for a couple years at least and I have big expectations about what we can achieve with Chelsea and the national team.

“I believe it’s the same for these players who are 34, 35, 36, 38. Zlatan thought he still could bring something to European football and he’s shown it since the beginning of the season.

“I feel ready and have more determination than before. Obviously, when I am on the pitch I try to be efficient and it’s working well. I am on a good run and I want to keep it up.”
