AS Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas has paid tribute to Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

Giroud is being celebrated in France this week after his stunning four goal haul in Chelsea's Champions League win at Sevilla.

Cesc posted to social media: "Olivier Giroud, what a real pro you are my mate. All young players should have you as a role model.

"Well done once again. And people always wonder why you always end up playing?!!

"Hard work, passion, dedication and real character to always make a difference."
