Chelsea’s young striker admits that he is using Giroud’s experience.

Chelsea’s

striker

Olivier Giroud

has been a source of ideas for his teammate

Tammy Abraham

as the young frontman admitted.

Here is what Abraham told Chelsea’s official website:

“Of course I learn a lot from him.

“He’s someone I grew up watching on TV so it’s great for me to be training with him now every day. I like to watch him and steal some ideas to add to my own game. I look at the way he holds the ball up and try to add parts of his game to mine.

“He gives me advice all the time. We were on the plane back from Newcastle the other day and I asked him what he thought of my header that the keeper saved. He gave me good criticism and things I can work on to score more headers.

“There are still a few things that I’m trying to work on.

“I’m very tall so I know I can score more headers and I want to improve my hold-up play, which is vital because sometimes a team needs the striker to hold the ball up so they can all get forward.

“I think I’ve got good feet for a tall guy and I know where the goal is. I’m always in and around the right places to try and get a shot off.”

And about his boss he said:

“He tells me just to keep working as hard as I can,

“He knows the goals are there so he encourages me to work on the other side of my game. I’ve been a player always so focused on scoring goals that sometimes I forget to do the other stuff so it’s about learning that.

“The goals will always come when I work hard. I know I’ve done well but it’s about kicking on from here and pushing myself to the limit.”
