Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud has revealed that he has no regrets over leaving Arsenal to move to Stamford Bridge despite his lack of gametime, but did admit that he does not accept his "current situation" with the club.
The 33-year-old has fallen behind Tammy Abraham in the pecking order under manager, Frank Lampard, making only 5 appearances so far this season, with many of those coming from the bench.

Giroud has just made one start this campaign and while he does not regret moving to Chelsea, he is not happy with his current situation.
"Accept it? No, I do not accept it. You do not have to be fatalistic in certain situations. I have always been respectful and humble. Even if I do not agree with the coach, I do not criticise him. But in myself, I cannot accept it because I know what I'm worth on a pitch. Last year, when I felt that I deserved to play, I asked the coach for explanations," he said as per Mirror.
The Frenchman has been a regular for France throughout his career and will need to ensure that he does play more amid increased competition in the attacking positions, or he will need to move to a different club if he cannot get more time on the pitch.
