Chelsea midfielder Kante hails Giroud: We've won the FA Cup and Europa League with him

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has heaped praise on Olivier Giroud after the Frenchman broke back into the starting XI.

Kante believes his compatriot can perform on any day, even when left out for several weeks.

He told the club website: “Since he came to Chelsea, we've won the FA Cup and Europa League, which he was top scorer in, even if he didn't play much at the beginning, and after the restart he scored many important goals.

“He's always working, trying to do well in training and bringing positive energy to the team, no matter his game time.

“He always gives his best and it's positive for all the team to see a player like this, staying positive and giving 100 per cent in training and games."
