Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is having a good second half of the season after failing to secure game time at the start of the campaign.
Since his failed exit from the club in January, the 33-year-old World Cup winner has been a huge part of the team and has impressed with two goals in four matches and a good all round performance to add to it.
Giroud has always been professional, which is one thing Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has often admitted. However, Giroud has revealed one thing he has been keen to ask his manager, which is the meaning of the phrase ‘first and foremost’.
The Frenchman speaks English pretty well, but there are still some words he hasn’t come to terms with, and ‘first and foremost’ just seems to be part of it, and it’s a phrase the Chelsea boss usually uses when dishing out instructions.
In an interview with the official Chelsea website, Giroud was asked: What in English have you never get the hang of?
The striker replied: “I still want to ask the gaffer when he says ‘first and foremost’. I have never asked but I believe it’s the first thing you need to do. Foremost I don’t know how to spell. He and Joe [Edwards] say it a lot, Joe especially on set-pieces. We have to stay focused!”
