AC Milan striker Giroud: Chelsea midfielder Kante hates losing

AC Milan striker Olivier Giroud admits Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante hates losing.

Giroud, who struck up a good relationship with his France team-mate while at Chelsea, has now revealed the fiercely competitive side of Kante many don't see behind closed doors.

"We've been playing chess – I have to say he's better than me," Giroud told talkSPORT.

"I've been winning some with him. I asked him to play Scrabble and I'm definitely better than him, so much better.

"He's a funny person, top man and he hates losing. Sometimes he tries everything to win and that's funny with him.

"He never gives up. On the pitch he tries to step up and is massively important for Chelsea and the national team.

"Off the pitch, he hates losing and sometimes it makes him a bit upset and angry. I always try to joke with him, he's a top man."
