Chelsea striker Giroud: I'm worried about playing without fans

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud admits he doesn't know what to expect when playing in front of empty stands.

Giroud is happy to have returned to training this past week.

Asked what he's missed since the coronavirus suspension, he said, "Not enough competition and adrenaline, fans. I'm worried about the prospect of playing without fans.

"But everything is fine, I have the right mood.

"All relatives are healthy, so it's a sin for me to complain."
