With the signings of Mike Maignan and Olivier Giroud, Milan have managed to add additional winning mentality to their team: a champion of France and a champion of Europe, which certainly isn’t bad.
As highlighted by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Maignan won the Ligue 1 with Lille last season and he was a protagonist for the club. He conceded just 22 goals in 34 games played and impressed between the sticks.
Giroud’s record, understandably so, is even more decorated: Champions League, Europa League, Ligue 1, seven cup wins in England and of course, the World Cup. In other words, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have added strong players to the team.
While the project focuses a lot on young players, it needs to be balanced out with a few experienced players that know what it means to win. Maignan and Giroud will help with this, which is why they will be so important for the club.
