Suara.com – Olivier Giroud has officially joined AC Milan. The French international striker also revealed the reason he chose to strengthen the Rossoneri.
Giroud officially left Chelsea and joined Milan after reportedly agreeing to a two-year contract with the Serie A giants on Saturday night local time or Sunday (18/7/2021) early morning WIB.
The veteran striker claimed to have followed AC Milan and admired several former Milan stars. Now Giroud wants to win trophies with the Rossoneri
“I still feel like a kid, 35 – or almost 35 –. When I was a kid, I admired Jean-Pierre Papin, Andriy Shevchenko and of course Paolo [Maldini],” Giroud told Milan TV as reported by livescore.

“This team makes me dream. I’m also a huge Marco van Basten fan. So many great players have played for this big club in Europe.”
“Milan have a big history in Europe and that’s why I wanted to join the club. Also playing in the best competition in Europe, in the Champions League, and I hope we can achieve great things with the team.”
Milan will return to the Champions League this season for the first time since 2013-14.
Only Real Madrid (13) have won more European titles than Milan’s seven, but the Rossoneri haven’t won the competition since 2007.
After winning the Champions League and Europa League with Chelsea for three years, Giroud wants to have the same experience with AC Milan.
“I feel blessed that I have the opportunity to win trophies, to play for a big club. I think Milan is a club that deserves to play at the highest level.”
