AC Milan coach Pioli praises Giroud after victory over Bologna

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli was delighted with Olivier Giroud for victory over Bologna.

Giroud and new signing Christian Pulisic struck for the 2-0 win.

Pioli said of Giroud: “He sets the example, he is a leader on and off the field, always has the right attitude and is ready to work for the team.

"He has won so much in his career, he is happy at Milan. It's true that he is no longer that young, so we must find a way to give him a breather every now and then, but I am very pleased to be coaching this great person."

He added, “We miss Zlatan (Ibrahimovic), that is for sure, but he did so much for this group and the best thing is that he helped us grow in terms of mentality. His absence is felt, but the players have grown thanks to him and learned so much over the last four years."
