Olivier Giroud has COVID-19 and he is currently at home in fiduciary isolation.
Giroud’s start for Milan has been brilliant as he scored in pre-season and then got on the scoresheet on Matchday 2, getting a brace against Cagliari on his debut at San Siro, with #9 on his back.
However, Olivier is now forced to stop. Not because of an injury, but due to COVID-19.
“Milan announces that today Olivier Giroud tested positive for a molecular swab carried out at home. The relevant local health authorities have been swiftly informed,” a statement on the Rossoneri website reads.
“The player is doing well but must remain in fiduciary isolation. It should be noted that Olivier has not had contact with the rest of the team since the championship match against Cagliari.”
