Olivier Giroud asserts that Milan is openly embracing their Scudetto and Champions League aspirations after strengthening the team.
In AC Milan’s 4-1 victory against Torino, the experienced striker Olivier Giroud successfully converted two penalty kicks, contributing to Milan’s flawless Serie A record in the first two rounds.
“I was fortunate this evening to have two penalties, but it is never easy to put them in the net,” Giroud told Sky Sport Italia.
“The lads worked really hard in the box, we could’ve scored more goals and I am very happy with the team spirit and how efficient we were.”
Christian Pulisic and Theo Hernandez also found the back of the net, while Perr Schuurs managed to equalize for Toro at San Siro briefly.
With a powerful beginning to the season and the addition of nine new players, Giroud will make no effort to conceal their aspirations for this campaign.
“The ambition is to do what we did two years ago! We hope to fight to the end with this spirit for the Scudetto,” he smiled, referencing their title triumph in 2022.
“We don’t want to hide ourselves away, there are five or six teams who can do it. This is just the beginning, so everyone stay calm, but we feel very confident with what we are doing on the pitch.
“There is a little more quality and quantity in the squad. I think this time we can play in both Serie A and the Champions League, while we also want to do well in the Coppa Italia. Now we have many players who are ready to step in and there are at least two options for every role, maybe even three, so there is good competition and it raises the level.”
