Oliver Giroud Explains Why Ac Milan Failed to Beat Newcastle: In Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League match, AC Milan’s Olivier Giroud provided an explanation for his team’s defeat against Newcastle United. Enoughinfo.co
Giroud was on the pitch as AC Milan drew 0-0 with Newcastle at San Siro Stadium to begin their Champions League campaign.
The French striker claimed in his post-match interview that Newcastle’s missed chances to score in front of goal was the reason Milan and the Serie A team drew 0-0.
“I think we had so many scoring opportunities and efficiency in front of goal is very important at this level,” Giroud said.
“We gave our all, we were just missing something in the finishing.
“We need to evaluate what has to be improved and focus on the next game. This is football, sometimes it is better to forget, but always with the desire to learn.”
“I love him [Sandro Tonali – Giroud’s former teammate], but tonight we really wanted to win. I think we were lacking some luck.” He continued.
