Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has praised the attitude of Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud after the France international scored the only goal of the game as the Blues beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 on Tuesday night.
“If you see him on a daily basis you cannot be surprised,” Tuchel replied when asked if he was surprised by Giroud’s winning goal.
“If you see him he is totally fit, his body is in shape, his physicality is on a top level and mentally I have the feeling he enjoys every day, being a professional soccer player at this level. This is the level he needs to be.
“He trains like a 20-year-old, he is a guy who is serious and with a good mix of serious and joy. He is always positive and a big factor for the group when he starts or when he comes from the bench, he has all these qualities.”
