Giroud happy to take No9 shirt: God wanted me to play for AC Milan

Olivier Giroud is happy taking the No9 shirt with AC Milan.

The former Chelsea striker was presented to the local media yesterday.

Giroud said, "I am not superstitious, a shirt number cannot change the way I play. Strikers like Inzaghi, Marco van Basten and Jean-Pierre Papin wore this shirt for Milan, but I don't feel the pressure."

He continued: “I won many trophies at every club I've been at and would like to do the same here. I do have an objective in my mind, but I don't want to reveal it, otherwise there'd be too much pressure. Let's just say my final objective is to win with Milan.

“The time had come to leave Chelsea and discover a new league. God wanted me to play for Milan. This is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I really believe in the project here. We've got what it takes to have a very good Champions League campaign."
