Ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final clash with Southampton, Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is hoping to win his fourth FA Cup after winning the competition three times with Arsenal.
“If I win it again, it would be my fourth FA Cup in five years. I’m very excited,” Giroud said.
“It’s a competition that is very important for the fans and for us. We are still hoping to qualify for the Champions League and, as long as it’s mathematically possible, we still have hope. The FA Cup is something different. Obviously, I want to win it with Chelsea.
“I am not an Arsenal player anymore so my target is to finish as best as I can with Chelsea. Chelsea is a competitor. In the last 13 years, Chelsea have been the biggest club. I signed here to win trophies. Obviously, Manchester City have done very well this season to be champions and that’s why it’s (the title race) over for this year.
“But I believe we can compete very well next season. I am looking forward to that. But we need to finish the job this season. We are professionals, we are competitors and we will believe until the end.”
