Giroud sends warning to Chelsea striker Timo Werner

Olivier Giroud has warned he is ready to fight with new Chelsea signing Timo Werner for a spot in the starting XI this season.

Giroud insists he does not feel threatened by Chelsea signing Timo Werner for £53million.

Giroud said, according to Daily Mail: “In every big club, there’s competition, and it always motivated me to fight for my spot,’ he told reporters while on international duty with France.

“Now, I’m not naive and I know that the club bought Werner to put him on the pitch. One thing’s for sure: we don’t have the same profile, he likes to go on the sides, he did it with his club and his national team.

“If it was a striker with a similar profile, I would have been more worried, but I think with the different games and the different teams we’ll play.

“The coach will choose different tactical systems and I really hope I’ll play, following what I did last year.”
