Tuttosport: Giroud unlikely to be called up for Milan-Lazio despite negative test

By Isak Möller -

Olivier Giroud tested negative for Covid-19 yesterday and will soon be back at the disposal of Stefano Pioli. However, the Frenchman is likely to miss out on AC Milan’s clash against Lazio tomorrow. 

As reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the striker will undergo several tests today, in line with the Covid-19 protocol. Only after that will he be able to resume sporting activities, so he could technically be called up tomorrow.

However, given that Giroud has stayed home for ten days, Pioli is expected to leave him out anyway. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back in action so the presence of the Frenchman isn’t as urgent, although Ante Rebic is expected to start.

Giroud will certainly be included in the squad that will take on Liverpool, though, and he could even start that game. We will have to wait and see how the manager will approach having both Giroud and Ibrahimovic at his disposal.
