The French center forward shouts “Forza Milan” to the fans before medical examinations. He will be the deputy and companion of Ibrahimovic. And he is not afraid of the legends about number 9
Between medical examinations and fitness, the first real day in the Rossoneri of Olivier Giroud, former Chelsea and World Champion in Russia 2018 with France, began very early. But even before announcing its official status, the online site of the Milan committed a error, and then turn around.
In fact, he anticipated what will be the jersey number of his new center forward. That’s right. Because by going to the section dedicated to the customization of the shirts, in the drop-down menu – where you can choose a player – the name of the French also appeared, combined with 9. A number that Giroud wore with Chelsea and Didier Deschamps’ national team, but which after the departure of Pippo Inzaghi in 2012 did not bring much good to the Rossoneri forwards, becoming a sort of curse. The option then disappeared.
But many think that after Mandzukic, Giroud will be the new number 9 of Stefano Pioli’s team. This morning, Friday 16 July, the striker reached the La Madonnina clinic shortly after 8 to support medical examinations. To welcome him a group of fans, to whom the player shouted “Go Milan”. So after the suitability test at the Ambrosiana and the signature on the contract (two-year), the new adventure of Giroud can begin. It can be the vice Ibrahimovic, but also the Swedish teammate. In a season in which the Rossoneri will also play the Champions League after seven years from the last time.
