Shevchenko: Facing Chelsea will be special for elegant AC Milan striker Giroud

Former AC Milan and Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko believes the Rossonero can win their Champions League clash this week.

Shevchenko is expecting an exciting clash.

He said, "Milan play good football, they are confident, they play at a high intensity and manage matches well. They have quality players who can make the difference.

“Milan play modern football that people like so much, they play attacking football but they also know how to manage all situations well during matches.

“There'll be a very hot atmosphere. Chelsea need to win and will raise the tempo a lot, but Milan have quality players. It will be a special match for Giroud who played for Chelsea, he is doing very well, he will be the centre of this match."

Shevchenko also commented on Olivier Giroud's impact with Milan.

“He's a very good person. He's a striker who knows where to put himself to score goals, he has a great eye for goal. He's elegant, he still has a lot to give to Milan. Having someone like him in the team helps a lot. It'll be a special game for him against Chelsea."
