Giroud praised by Italian papers after ‘merciless’ goal against Juventus

By Isak Möller -

Olivier Giroud was the hero for AC Milan in their 1-0 win against Juventus last night, scoring a lovely header to secure the Rossoneri’s top-four finish. In today’s papers, he received praise for that. 

Giroud scored a hat-trick against Sampdoria and followed that up with his first-ever goal against Juventus, finding the back of the net with a stunning header. It was enough to claim the three points and subsequently secure a top-four finish.

In our player ratings, which you can read here, Giroud received a 7/10 and also the MOTM award. In addition to the goal, he helped Milan a lot in the duels and was very good in his hold-up play.

As compiled by MilanNews, the Italian papers gave the striker good ratings this morning. ‘He turned green like the hulk’, as Gazzetta Dello Sport put it, or a ‘merciless punisher’ as Tuttosport went with.

Gazzetta dello Sport: 7
Tuttosport: 7
Corriere dello Sport: 7
Corriere della Sera: 7.5
