In an interview with French Telefoot, the experienced French striker Olivia Giroud revealed the details of joining Milan, but also what the last moments in the Chelsea jersey looked like. He arrived at the San Siro last summer in a transfer worth 1,000,000 euros and initialed a two-year contract with the Italian giant.
Giroud (34) has already scored two goals in four matches in all competitions for the Rossoneri this season, and it seems that he could increase his lethality even more. "It was a logical choice to join Milan. I was a fan of this club when I was younger.
Van Basten and Baresi played there. I am proud to have come here and I hope it will be fun." "The welcome was wonderful, they welcomed me as a family. I had a great debut, I feel very good and I am hungry for the victory with Milan, "Giroud told Telefoot.
Milan now has two veterans in the attack, but also goal scorers who are always ready to compete with the best. "Zlatan is a legend and there will be a real competition between us. I can score at least 15 goals, if I play every game, I expect that."
As time goes on this season, stories about the "Scudetto" are getting louder among Rossoneri fans. "I hope so. We have quality and young players. That is a clear goal we have in front of us." And then about the reasons for leaving London.
"I liked the Premier League, but at one point I had to make a decision. I told Tuchel that it was difficult for me in the last three months." "It was a logical choice to leave Chelsea. I left with the club with great emotions, related to all the moments we have.
Some were good, some not so good, but we won three important trophies," Giroud concluded Giroud seems to have made a good choice because Milan should be an environment where he will get minutes and show the quality he obviously has.
Milan started the season furiously and they have a good chance for Scudetto. Of course, they are aware in the club that the season is long and that such a start does not have to mean anything. It is necessary for them to continue at the same pace, and we do not know whether they will succeed. Looking at the players they have, it is obvious that they have quality, but sometimes quality is not enough
