Former Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has revealed it was hard to leave Chelsea for AC Milan because he likes the Premier League.

Giroud also revealed he told Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel it was hard being at Chelsea without having game time.

Giroud told Telefoot: “Chelsea? It’s hard to leave such a club. It’s hard to leave England because I spent nine years there. All my children are there, my family felt really good there.

“I liked the Premier League a lot too, but at some point you had to make a decision. The last three months that I lived there and besides I had told the coach (Thomas) Tuchel, it was too hard.”
