Olivier Giroud has revealed N’Golo Kante was too shy to touch the World Cup after winning it with France last month in Russia.
Both players were regulars for France in the World Cup and they discussed their World Cup success.
“Obviously we knew that Hugo (captain Lloris) would be the first one to touch it,” said Giroud after he was asked about getting his hands on the World Cup by Chelsea TV.
“I have to say I have been clever because I took the good position to touch it.”
The interviewer then asks Kante when he got to touch the World Cup.
“I was waiting my turn,” Kante said, before Giroud interrupted.
“He is so shy so he didn’t want to say ‘give it to me’, so he had to wait.
“Sometimes people came in front of him.
“At the end of the day someone took it and gave it to him.”
