AC Milan Honors Giroud's Heroics with Custom Goalkeeper Kits
AC Milan has announced that fans can now purchase a goalkeeper kit with Olivier Giroud's name printed on the back, following the striker's remarkable performance in goal during their 1-0 victory against Genoa on Saturday.
During the match, Milan's regular goalkeeper Mike Maignan received a red card in the dying moments of stoppage time. In a courageous move, Giroud stepped in as the goalkeeper and made a spectacular save to deny George Puscas just before the final whistle.
In recognition of Giroud's heroic contribution, Milan has added him to the list of first-team goalkeepers on their website. The club expressed their appreciation in a statement, saying, "Last night Olivier Giroud became part of Milan history by courageously defending the AC Milan goal in the final minutes of the Rossoneri's match against Genoa."
To further honor his performance in the last line of defense, Milan is offering fans the opportunity to purchase the goalkeeper jersey and customize it with 'Giroud 9.' The demand for the home goalkeeper jersey in Milan's official store surged, with it being sold out as of Monday.
