Chelsea news: Frank Lampard delight as Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero extend contracts | Football | Sport


Chelsea bosses have activated a one-year option to keep striker Giroud, who was close to leaving for Inter Milan in January. The 33-year-old has been a fringe figure under Lampard, making only 13 appearances this term, but the Chelsea boss is delighted to have secured his future.

“Since I have been back at Chelsea, Olivier has been brilliant as a professional and as a man in general,” he said.

“He has great qualities to help the squad both on and off the pitch, not only with his talent but with the example he sets every day and the experience he brings to our young squad. I am very pleased that will continue next season.”

Caballero has been Chelsea’s No 2 goalkeeper since arriving from Manchester City on a free transfer in 2017.
