Olivier Giroud has reportedly backed his former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard for the Newcastle United job.
Speaking to the Telegraph, he said: “I want to continue, I’d like the chance to show the new owners what I can do, but you have to be realistic and they may well want a new manager to launch things for them.

“New owners normally want a new manager. I’ve been around long enough to understand that.
“That decision is not up to me. I accept that and I will accept what comes my way. I have to wait to have those conversations with people when the time is right.”
Lampard has been subsequently tipped to takeover Bruce in the north east, and Giroud, who played under the former Chelsea captain at Stamford Bridge, thinks that he is an ideal candidate for the role.
