‘So clean’: Mason Mount stunned by player Arsenal sold in 2018 who has ‘unbelievable’ technique

‘So clean’: Mason Mount stunned by player Arsenal sold in 2018 who has ‘unbelievable’ technique

Mason Mount informed the Premier League that former Arsenal and Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud have “unbelievable” technique in his game.

The England midfielder said that he had “never” seen anyone strike the ball as cleanly as the current AC Milan star, who previously played for Chelsea and Arsenal.

Giroud, who now wears the colors of AC Milan, the Serie A champions from last season, spent six years at the Emirates Stadium before joining Chelsea in 2018.

The fact that he won the Europa League in Chelsea’s colors a year later, and against Arsenal, did not help matters.

But when Mount was asked to select his FIFA Ultimate Team, he made sure to include Giroud.

“You know who I am going to go for, Ollie Giroud, my boy,” said Mount. “I have never seen someone hit the ball so cleanly. The technique is unbelievable. Volleying, half-volleys and it’s so clean.

“I was lucky enough to be with him for a year and a half, or maybe a bit longer, so just a finisher. If I know I have got something like that, then I don’t need to look. I am just putting it in the box. The connection that we would have and hoping that he would be on the end of it. Be in the right position for when I put the ball in, so you don’t have to think that much.”

Giroud helped France win the World Cup in Russia the last time he appeared on football’s biggest stage, and now he’s returning to try to do it all again.

This time in the sweltering heat of Qatar in the Middle East, the reigning world champions have a daunting task ahead of them, as a number of really formidable teams are hunting for them.

The South American duo of Brazil and Argentina appear particularly formidable, but you can never count out Germany in a major tournament, and Switzerland and Senegal are always lurking around the corner.

Then England is consistently one of the favorites… but, we know the rest!
