AC Milan on their website have officially confirmed that striker Olivier Giroud has tested negative for the coronavirus following his positive test about a week or so ago. The player will, tomorrow, undergo a medical screening as per Italian government protocols in order to return to sporting activities.

The striker has scored 2 goals for Milan in the opening 2 games of the season with a brace in the win over Cagliari. He has been at the helm of the attack as a result of the injury of Zlatan Ibrahimovic but will not likely play any part in the game against Lazio tomorrow evening. He is likely to make his return in the Champions League opener against Liverpool away from home in the mid week tie. The French striker will be an important player for Stefano Pioli this week as Milan face Lazio, Liverpool FC and Juventus in just a few days.
