It’s surprising to think that Olivier Giroud has always been dismissed as a true number one striker since arriving in England from Montpellier, but he continues to prove his worth season after season.
It is still unclear whether he will remain at Chelsea after January due to lack of playing time in the Premier League, but his performances in the Champions League have shown why he should have a regular place in this team.
He’s dependable and does an amazing job of bringing other players into the game, while also being a prolific scorer, as he demonstrated by scoring all four of Chelsea’s goals against Sevilla tonight.
The respect shown by his teammates has also shown his high esteem, while his former Chelsea colleague Cesc Fabregas took to Twitter tonight to show his appreciation for the Chelsea forward:
@_OlivierGiroud_ What a true professional you are, partner. All young players should have you as a role model. Well done one more time. And people still wonder why you always end up playing! Hard work, passion, dedication, and real character to always change things. ??

Giroud should be a key part of the France squad for the next few euros, but he needs to play regular football to cement that place in the squad, so hopefully Chelsea will play him more often or let him go to make sure. not to be lost. .
