AC Milan

Giroud downplays ‘hero’ status and praises Milan’s ‘great team spirit’ vs. Inter


Olivier Giroud is the man of the moment for AC Milan as his match-winning brace against Inter in the derby has stolen all the headlines, but he does not believe he is the ‘hero’.

At the end of the game, the Man of the Match Giroud spoke to the American broadcaster CBS Sports to reflect on a memorable night. The 35-year-old has over 70 derbies worth of experience, but being responsible for winning the Milan derby must be right up there.

It was your first Derby della Madonnina, how do you feel about being the hero for the Rossoneri?

“I don’t like to say I’m the hero. Obviously a striker is on the pitch to score, I was also a bit lucky, in the right place at the right time for the first one. On the second, I did something I like to do, and Calabria gave me a nice ball,” he said (via MilanNews).

“We returned to the game after a difficult first half, they didn’t finish the game and we showed great team spirit by overturning it. I am proud of this team.”

On the performance in the second half: “We said we had to give everything in the second half, there were no other ways. It’s a six-point game, we knew it and we did it. Now we are in a better position but still behind Inter. We have shown once again that our team has great character.”

On the atmosphere in the locker room: “We needed a win like this to continue strong. We have to continue to work well, thinking game by game, also hoping that the opponents can trip once or twice (laughs).”
