Giroud signs one-year contract extension at Chelsea

The Czech veteran is set to retire this summer after a distinguished career in which he won four Premier Leagues, five FA Cups, three League Cups and a Champions League.

Chelsea's move to retain the France worldwide follows their decision to break their policy of only offering one-year extensions to players over the age of 30 when David Luiz signed a new two-year contract earlier this month.

He said in a post on Twitter: "Despite the news today as I had already said to everybody before, I'll make decision about my future after the last game".

It is not yet known what Cech's new role will entail and whether it will involve numerous same roles Michael Emenalo had before he resigned in 2017. The Europa League presents Chelsea's final opportunity to end what has been a frustrating season with something to smile about.

"Obviously I'm happy to be here", he said.

"With what I've achieved here, there is no reason they won't give me one more year".

It is likely that he will be summed during the final against Arsenal.

The finale of Game of Thrones cemented the fantasy epic's status as the most watched television series in HBO history. Season 8 is now averaging 44.2 million viewers in gross audience, which marks an increase of more than 10 million.

Neither manager has used Giroud as a regular starter, with the Frenchman forced to be patient in pursuit of minutes. He was playing the last (Europa League) matches, ideal matches, with big performances.

"I'm a privileged coach to be with him". We're going to use all our effort to win and to be together and enjoy this final together.

"I trust and believe in him".

He then moved on to Arsenal in 2015, after over a decade at the club, once Thibaut Courtois began to assert his dominance as the Chelsea's first-choice shot-stopper.

"I spoke with Aaron Ramsey, who's injured, but it's the same with Petr Cech".

At the last count, Chelsea also lost midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek to injury last week after suffering an Achilles rupture during a Holocaust Memorial match in the US.
