Nice coach Galtier praises 'great player' Giroud after goal on AC Milan debut

Nice coach Christophe Galtier praised Olivier Giroud after his goal on debut for AC Milan on Saturday.

Giroud scored with his first touch in a Rossoneri shirt, nodding home a free kick from Samu Castillejo in the 1-1 draw.

“We faced an opponent of great quality, even if they were not at their best, a team that finished second in the League," Galiter told Milan TV.

“We improved in intensity and pace compared to the previous friendlies. There was a desire and enthusiasm.

“I'm sorry for the goal, because it's the third one we concede in this pre-season period, but it's not easy to contain a great player like Olivier Giroud, who is a formidable header.

“There are some satisfying points, but also several things to improve. It was important to play at home with our fans and especially against a great team.

“It was an interesting game, obviously far from perfect, but since there's progress from last time."
