Giroud says 'it's always nice to be in the club history' after scoring four against Sevilla in the Champions League.
FT: Sevilla 0-4 Chelsea
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud expressed his delight after putting four past LaLiga side Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
The Blues striker, who hasn’t been able to play on a regular basis this season, showed Frank Lampard that he is still capable of scoring goals.
However, the 33-year-old hailed Chelsea’s all-round display, adding that it was 'good' they 'took the game from the front foot'.
Speaking to BT Sport after the victory, the Frenchman said: "When you win 4-0 in a Champions League away game it's always a great feeling and a good performance from the team. We took the game from the front foot and we were efficient upfront, especially for me because I scored four goals.
"I didn't know until two years ago that you called it a perfect hat-trick, when I scored against Kyiv in Europa League I said what do you mean? It was good, I had good assists though.
"I will try to carry on like that to finish the good job of the team and it's always nice to be in the club history and we play football to mark our history so I'm pleased to help the team to win and to score the four goals."
On starting against Leeds in the Premier League on Saturday, he replied: "Let me enjoy the night and that great win and after that, we will rest and we will see what the gaffer's plan is."
Asked about the return of fans, the former Arsenal striker said: "It's been a long time, we miss our fans, football is not the same sport, the passion is not the same without the fans so obviously we are looking forward to Saturday and we hope for a nice welcome."
