Mason Mount among the ‘top three players’ – Olivier Giroud

Ex-Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, named Mason Mount as one of ‘top three players’ he has played with.

Giroud was a crucial part in Chelsea’s 2018/19 Europa League campaign. Chalking up 11 goals in the competition, he was the Blues opening goal scorer in the final vs Arsenal in Baku.

The 35-yrs-old Frenchman left Chelsea in 2021, three years after he joined the English side. After a pretty decent campaign at Stamford Bridge, he joined Italian side AC Milan on a €6m 2-year deal.

For two years, Mount and Giroud made a pretty decent strike and midfield partnership under Frank Lampard. Mount continued to be the Blues central midfielder while Giroud stayed up top as their no.9.

While the Frenchman had good physical attributes and finishing, his consistency always pulled him down. On the other hand, Mount’s link up between midfield and the edge of the final third paired with his “getting into the box” tendency, slowly made his starts consistent.

After Thomas Tuchel’s takeover, Giroud parted ways with the Englishman. at Milan, Olivier is slowly finding his consistency. As for Mason, he has managed to seal the CM spot at Chelsea.

Mason Mount and Kai Havertz have top player qualities says the former Chelsea striker Giroud

Not just Mount, but Giroud also commented about ex-Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz, saying:

“There were so many young talented players at Chelsea as well. Mount & Havertz are different class, different quality, and I’m looking forward to seeing them grow up and become top players.”

Havertz, who won Chelsea their 2nd Champions League title, has also made a mark on the team. However, with the introduction of former Inter Milan striker, Romelu Lukaku, Kai seems to have been struggling for game time. Now that Lukaku is out with injury, the young German once again is the first choice striker for the Blues.
