Chelsea's German Defender Antonio rudiger has been left impressed with the manner his teammate Giroud conducted himself after missing out on a January winter move.
Rudiger told the Evening Standard of the 33-year-old frontman on the back of a 2-1 win over Spurs: “I give massive respect to him.
“He was always patient, he never said anything, even when his transfer didn’t go through. He remained humble and worked hard.
“And there was also a difference when he came on against United. On Saturday he had a big impact. He is a team player and he always puts himself on the line.
“He is not only about scoring — he is always putting in the hard work and that is why I am very pleased.”
The Blues defender also pointed out a lack of killer instinct in the final third which has mostly affected the team's result this season.
"We sometimes miss the killer instinct that Lewandowski has, for example," Rudiger told SID.
"Just the greed for more, this greed in front of the goal. Lewandowski is 31 years old and is still hungry for goals."
