Olivier Giroud was the man of the match in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Sevilla, and the 34-year-old was in great form as he scored four goals in the game.

Giroud was sold to Chelsea by Arsenal, and legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has now spoken of the Frenchman.

Wenger, who signed Giroud during his time as Arsenal boss, has now admitted that the Frenchman is a quality striker.

Wenger told CBS Sports: “I said that many times, as well the Premier League, in the French national team there is always a debate about him but Olivier Giroud has – apart from his footballing qualities – he has an absolutely strong mentality and strong motivational level and has qualities that nobody else has.

“He can always be a resource inside a club even when he doesn’t start the game and has an immaculate mentality.

“He is a real team player what is not always the case for strikers and overall I think he is an exceptional personality. And that’s why every time you think he’s disappeared, he bounces back.

“There’s no coincidence, he has over 100 caps for France. Nobody gives you 100 caps to please you.”
