Olivier Giroud believes that the AC Milan fans deserve much better than what they have seen over the past few weeks, and described the derby as a potential turning point.
Milan conceded three goals in an 11-minute spell in the first half against Sassuolo en route to a 5-2 defeat that continues the awful start to 2023, and at the end of the match Giroud spoke to Milan TV to reflect on the performance.
“I have the feeling that all things are not going the right way and that we can do more, giving everything on the pitch for our fans who always sing until the end. I’m very disappointed for us but also for them they don’t deserve this,” he said.
“We need to raise the level and do more starting from Inter next week. We need to defend better all together and work more concentrated. The attitude wasn’t at its best for the whole match that is being played until the 95th. I try to encourage my team-mates but it’s a difficult period and we must all work and learn together.
“The derby will become a turning point in our season because we need to raise the level and we need to win again.”
