Saha believes 'tough cookie' Giroud will embrace Werner challenge at Chelsea

Louis Saha believes Olivier Giroud will embrace the challenge of Timo Werner's arrival at Chelsea.

The German was signed from RB Leipzig this summer to become Frank Lampard's star forward.

But Saha thinks Giroud won't give up his playing time without a fight.

"Olivier Giroud is a very tough cookie and he will not worry too much about the arrival of Timo Werner at Chelsea," Saha said on the Football Index Podcast.

"Giroud wants to score and he wants to help his teammates. He is a competitor and wherever he is, he will always perform.

"Giroud is very motivated and I'm sure that next year we will hear about him again."
