Agent of Giroud explains why Milan move has ‘completed him’

The decision to leave the Premier League and try a new experience in Italy has ‘completed’ Olivier Giroud, according to his agent.

Giroud arrived at Milan in the summer of 2021 as he signed for a small fee from Chelsea to begin his first spell in Serie A. It was initially thought that he would be a deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the Swede’s injury problems meant he soon seized a starting berth.

The 36-year-old has scored 22 goals in 55 total appearances for the Rossoneri since arriving, including several huge goals in the Serie A title win last season, and he has also earned a spot in the French national team too, netting a brace in their World Cup opener against Australia.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport carries some comments from Michael Manuello – Giroud’s agent – ​​who spoke about the fact that his client is currently having one of the best moments of his career.

“Italy completed him because they asked him for different things. In Serie A he stays more in the box than in the past and has responsibilities as a starting striker. Olivier was often a number 2 or a number 1 and a half in the hierarchies, while at Milan he is one of the references of the team,” he said (via MilanNews).
