Giroud discusses important goalscoring milestone and facing Chelsea with Milan

By Isak Möller -

Olivier Giroud scored his 301st career goal in the derby between AC Milan and Inter last night, meaning he hit a very important milestone in the game against Bologna. An achievement he’s understandably proud of. 

The Frenchman was one of the key players for Milan during the Scudetto season and he has certainly started this term in a positive manner as well, bagging two goals and one assist in five games. Yesterday, he scored another important derby goal.

As mentioned, it was the 301st goal in his career and that means he reached the important 300 milestone with the impressive goal against Bologna. Speaking to Telefoot, as cited by our colleagues at, he spoke about the milestone and also facing Chelsea in the Champions League.

“It’s a good number, I’m proud to have reached this milestone. Now my aim is to not stop there. The best goals? The volley in France-Sweden, the bicycle kicks with Chelsea against Atletico Madrid and with Arsenal against the Red Star.”

“Chelsea? I left but we have remained on good terms, as with all the clubs I have left. To face Chelsea with the Milan shirt is fantastic, I think it will be a good moment. I still feel motivated and determined to do well, as long as I’m physically well I would like to continue playing. I talked about it with Ibra, he also thinks like me and is still hungry for victories,” he stated.

Milan will begin their Champions League campaign on Tuesday evening, taking on RB Salzburg away from home. Giroud has started three consecutive games and might get some rest, as Divock Origi has now recovered from his injury.

  1. I have to admit giroud has proved me wrong because when Ac Milan first signed him I was not convinced at all, but Giroud seems to get better with age.
    I would rest Giroud a rest on Tuesday it’ is asking a lot for a 35 year old to play 4 games in such a quick succession, we don’t need him getting injured

  2. Giroud is a class act …I said that when we signed him that we would win the scuddeto,and indeed we have .
    He is technically so good he really is ,just watch his clever movement off the ball and his awareness of where the ball will be ..Inside the 18 yard area there is no one better than him anywhere in the world ,yes I believe that ..He seems to always score in the most important games ,and has such a desire and belief to win , when he starts we will lose only a few games .Plenty more goals to come from Olivier ,,he has such good support players around him ,,what a combination with leao ,,,also loads of goals from him .
    We have an amazing management team ..We can challenge again this season for the scuddeto..I also believe we can have a good run in the champions leauge plenty to play for ,,,just as Olivier Giroud says “ keep believing “ He does and so do i’s Ac Milan for me …
