Giroud after Milan and Dinamo Zagreb: “Disappointed with the change”. But Pioli extinguishes the controversy

The Frenchman scored in 14 matches with the Rossoneri: everyone won. Pioli recalibrates the switch issue: “We talked about it and clarified it, I can’t drain it, Napoli on Sunday”

One man one sentence. And with that we reached the height of fourteen and the happy pairing continued. Fourteen is the number of matches Giroud has scored for the Rossoneri (18 goals), or the same matches Milan have won. “Oly” points, the devil gets the three points: Do you like the equation? So much for him that even at the end of the match, even with a smile, everyone who sees him needs to catch his breath is lying: “I am a little disappointed about the substitution, but it is normal, I am very competitive. I understood that the coach wants to comfort me. But I want Always being on the field. It’s my passion and I always want to play, I want to do that to help the team.” Thirty-six years (within a few days) on the ID card, twenty years in proximity to work: irreducibly enthusiastic. Among other things, Bewley himself answered last night, namely in a preliminary speech on forced labor, as follows: “He is always happy to play … much less when I take him out.” specially.

past six

Then after the match the coach replied as follows: “We talked about it and we understood each other. I couldn’t think of draining it. It’s very good that the player always wants to play, but he also knows very well that I have to do my job.” Observed from the outside, it is clear that the choice of technician is impeccable. Napoli arrived on Sunday evening and needed to defend the leadership in a match in which the Frenchman is, for a change, the owner of the attacking position. Lack of alternatives, even if you want to turn to them: Rebic and Origi will not return until after the break – hopefully – and De Ketelaere can play the center of the striker, but the emergency solution remains. Doing it in the Belgian League is one thing, another in the Champions League or in Serie A, Giroud will return to the field on Sunday in his second major. If the first is the spell – when they score, Milan wins – then the other is the chain factor. The first match against Napoli will be Ole for the sixth time out of eight season matches. And let’s talk about the last six lined up. But on the other hand, in the last minute he played all the last 18 matches since the first minute. Many things had changed since his arrival as Vice Ibra.

First smile (for Milan)

Among other things, Milan, who lost Casey and without a needle, found a wonderful penalty kick. Olivier’s statistics show that the Frenchman scored 17 penalties out of 20 goals in clubs. But the wrong three go back to the mists of time: two with Montpellier and one with Arsenal in 2012. From then on, always on target. This time under the watchful eye of Spanish referee Manzano, who – speaking of penalties – managed the crazy night with Rio Ave. It was the first goal in the Champions League in the Rossoneri jersey for Giroud, which was dry last year, without the ability to honor the European champions’ ranks. “The Champions is the most beautiful competition ever. We want to beat the groups. We are doing well, but very calm and calm. We need calm and confidence.”
