Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has long admired Brazilian football.

That's according to former FC Tours teammate Vinícius Julianetti, who discussed Giroud with ESPN Brasil.

He recalled: "Giroud always told me about Rai, who was a very well-known player in France since his stint at PSG.

"He was a fan of him.

"He also praised Juninho Pernambucano who, at that time, was the great idol of Lyon."
