Olivier Giroud has admitted it is a dream to win the Scudetto with Milan this season, but acknowledged that they remain in a fight for the title.
The Frenchman joined Milan from Chelsea last summer and has become a key player in the Rossoneri’s title charge, easing the load on Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Discussing life at San Siro and his career with Gazzetta dello Sport (via calciomercato.com) Giroud opened up on Milan’s title chances: “Inter have not sunk and remain a danger like Napoli and Juve.
“We are aware that the Scudetto is within reach, but we must remain lucid, humble, continue to work hard until the end,” He explained, adding that Milan only have ‘finals’ left to play and must give 200% to the cause.
He also talked about Milan’s last title win in 2011, comparing the squad to today’s younger side: “There is a perfect alchemy between experienced players and young players. I see the right ingredients and the right balance that gives me hope.”
Giroud has managed 11 goals and four assists from 29 games in all competitions so far this season, and his presence alongside Ibrahimovic has proven vital. The 35-year-old described him as an ‘older brother’ and acknowledged the importance of his presence among the squad.
