“There is nobody who will be praised by everybody. You know it is part of football, it is part of the game.
“Sometimes people want other players to play in your position or because they are jealous or whatever the reasons. I understand that with experience and I’m okay with that.
“Maybe sometimes I am underrated but the most important thing is the numbers. For a striker that is what matters.
“As long as I am efficient for the team and Les Bleus and making my family proud, the rest I concede.”
Chelsea have endured a big slump in form of late, only winning one of their last seven matches in all competitions.
It has led to increasing pressure on manager Frank Lampard but Giroud believes Lampard has “a lot of qualities’ and is enjoying playing under the 42-year-old.
When asked what it is like to have a manager who he has shared a pitch with in the past, Giroud told Stadium Astro: “It’s nice to have a younger manager. He is still learning through his career but has already got a lot of qualities to manage a team.
“I wish he could join in to play with us a bit more but his knee is not quite right at the moment so hopefully it will get better soon and we can play with him.
“To be honest he has good ideas and it’s always nice to have a manager who was a big player and who has won a lot things and can help you to improve.”
