Olivier Giroud in action for Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri said Olivier Giroud remains a “very important” player for Chelsea after his hat-trick against Dynamo Kiev.

Giroud’s triple took him top of the overall goalscoring charts for this year’s competition, as Chelsea raced into the quarter-finals with a 5-0 win in Ukraine and an 8-0 aggregate scoreline.

The striker has found himself on the fringes of the Blues’ first team in the Premier League since the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain on loan in January, but Sarri told reporters after the game he remains an important figure in his plans.
