The 34-year-old striker has only started one Premier League game this season, despite scoring nine goals in 15 appearances for Chelsea this season, and a club total of 18 in 34 games.
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has admitted his disappointment over his low get time under Frank Lampard.
For what was a possible last straw, Giroud was an unused substitute last weekend as Chelsea got a 3-1 thrashing from rivals Manchester City in London.
“It doesn’t matter who you are, everybody gets disrespected,” Giroud said via Stadium Astro.
“There is nobody who will be praised by everybody. You know it is part football, part of the game. Sometimes people want other players to play. I understand that with that experience and I’m okay with that.
“Maybe sometimes I am underrated but the most important thing is the numbers. For a striker that is what matters.
“As long as I am efficient for the club team and Les Bleus and making my family proud, the rest I concede,” said the former Arsenal striker.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have an FA Cup meeting with a Covid-19 hit Morecambe next Sunday.
