Olivier Giroud and N’Golo Kante may be teammates for club and country, but they are competitors off the pitch.

While they share the same goal on the field of play, the duo are very competitive in games.

Giroud has revealed how Kante do beat him in the game of chess, but added that he’s by far the better player when it comes to scrabble.

“It’s true he beats me at chess but he’s had more training because he started playing before me,” Giroud offers as his excuse, as he told the official Chelsea website.

“When I saw him playing, I said, ‘why not? Let’s play together’.

“He has more experience but he’s definitely very good. Out of 10 games, he would normally beat me seven times. We play Scrabble a lot too, in French, and I beat him by far!”
