His celebrations were muted scoring against his former employers, and he said afterwards: “I left so many friends in Arsenal, this club changed my life, gave me the chance to make my dream come true in playing in the Premier League .
& # 39; I owe them a lot, I'll never forget it, so that's why I didn't want to celebrate, but on the other hand I'm so proud to win this with Chelsea. I am definitely a true blue. & # 39;
He added: & # 39; I am very proud because this team deserved to win something.
& # 39; We lost the League Cup against Manchester City, but this one is special, the second best European cup. It was very special for me and I am very happy for the team. & # 39;
Giroud & # 39; s goal also made sure that he finished as the top scorer in the competition.
