Giroud explains why he isn’t afraid of Werner’s arrival at Chelsea

Olivier Giroud has insisted he isn’t worried about the arrival of Timo Werner at Chelsea because he has something unique to offer to the team, which is his hold-up play as Chelsea’s fulcrum.

“Werner’s arrival is an additional motivation and it was inevitable that the club recruit a striker,” the Frenchman told L’Equipe.

“Chelsea are a great club, which spends money to strengthen the team, and I was expecting someone to come.

“With Ziyech and Werner, Chelsea will try to be more competitive.

“If you had told me that it was a player of my profile who was coming, I would have been worried. It is not.

“As other teams play in a compact way against us, it’s not bad to have a big, a fulcrum that can make the link.

“But I’m not naive: Werner didn’t arrive to sit on the bench.

“I’ll do everything so that Lampard finds himself in a complex situation when it comes to making his selection.”
