Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has disagreed with one of his players over the amount of playing time being given to him at the club this season.

Earlier this month, Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud told reporters that he’s frustrated with his lack of quality playing time at the club.

Giroud further revealed that he might need to change his situation as he attempts to get more playing time under his belt.

Sarri addressed the situation concerning Giroud and the playing time alloted to him during his pre-match thoughts ahead of the crucial Premier League game with Burnley.

Chelsea host the Clarets at home with the hopes of securing the win that would take them as high as third spot on the league table.

Sarri told reporters that French World Cup winner Olivier Giroud has played 39 games for Chelsea this season and that he doesn’t agree with the player on his lack of playing time at the club.

Giroud has always been the second choice striker at Chelsea this season especially in the Premier League.

He has played second or even third fiddle to the likes of Alvaro Morata (presently on an 18-month loan deal to Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid), Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard as far as the star striker role at Chelsea is concerned.

Majority of his playing time has been in the cup competitions especially the Europa League where he’s the topscorer with 10 goals.
