What Olivier Giroud said

As quoted by the Mirror, the former Blues forward said: "Mason and Kai Havertz, different class, different quality, and I’m looking forward to seeing them grow up and become top players."

He added on Mount being under-appreciated: "Yeah, maybe, but you don’t need to listen to these people," said the Frenchman when asked if Mount is underrated. "Mason has got that quality and mentality to go very high, I’ve told him. He deserves to be successful, definitely."
