Recruited this summer by AC Milan, Olivier Giroud gave himself over to his first months in Italy and his departure from Chelsea.

Not coming within the plans of Thomas Tuchel , Olivier Giroud made the decision to leave Chelsea during the last summer transfer window to discover a new championship, the Serie A . The France international is now playing at AC Milan and it didn't take long to adjust to his new life, with 4 goals in 11 games in all competitions. In an interview with L’Équipe, Olivier Giroud reconsidered his decision: “My arrival in Italy was a bit written through contacts with other clubs before (Inter, Lazio and Juventus). Fate wanted it to be AC ​​Milan. I wanted to discover this very exciting Championship. I wanted to take up a new challenge. Everything was there to give my career a boost, explains the 35-year-old. The last few months at Chelsea have been difficult. I had the good fortune to spend nine years in the Premier League, moreover in the same city. For my family, for me, it was ideal. But in terms of sport, I needed something else. I was ready. There was no other way out with Chelsea. I was less and less happy at the end, without playing time. But there was also emotion in this start. I am leaving for the best club title with this Champions League, being also the club's top scorer in this competition with six goals. “
