The Rossoneri have been almost flawless domestically in the early stages of the season, winning four of their five opening matches. Their defeat was a painful one, however, losing to the Nerazzurri 5-1 in the first Derby della Madonnina of the season.
Milan also struggled to show their best against Newcastle United in their Champions League opener, pilling on the pressure ahead of their next European outing against Borussia Dortmund next week.
Speaking to Sky Sports Italia on the live broadcast, Giroud discussed Milan’s desire to maintain consistency and their goals in Serie A and the Champions League.
“The coach told me that I will rest today, I am very happy to be here with the squad to help my teammates, fire them up and be there to support them. We know there are a lot of games, the important thing is to have consistency in results, so these are three crucial points.
“In my first season here, we had a huge year in Serie A, in the second a strong Champions League run. This year we want to do both, so to get through the group stage and keep in contact with Inter at the top of the table. We have the quality and quantity to do it, we are letting nothing go.”
Giroud has been one of Inter’s most important players this season, scoring four goals and providing three assists in six appearances across all competitions, being a key figure in their attack.
