Olivier Giroud has insisted that he harbours no regrets over leaving Arsenal because moving to Chelsea resembled joining a bigger club.
The Frenchman, having spent five and a half years at Arsenal, completed a move to Stamford Bridge in January 2018.
When asked about the reasons behind his decision to leave the Emirates, Giroud said: "It was not easy to leave Arsenal for Chelsea two years ago. I loved Arsenal.
"But it was a progression because Chelsea is the English club that has won the most titles, with Manchester City, in ten years.
"I had competitors in attack – [Alvaro] Morata, [Gonzalo] Higuain, who ended up leaving. I won at the end: I played the final of the FA Cup in 2018 and the [Europa League] final in 2019."
