“We play every three days, and that’s just not easy on the body,” Giroud told DAZN. “Not everything was perfect, but we won and that’s the most important thing.

“We played a good game, I think. Torino are a strong, physical team. They’re aggressive in tackles and there were plenty of challenges with Bremer, who’s a great defender.

“I’m really happy because we started well and Torino didn’t really create lots of scoring opportunities. That shows we were really solid at the back, and we’ve taken the three points, which is the most important thing.

“We can do better at times. It’s not perfect, but Torino are very tough to play against, and we got the three points. That’s what I really like about this team [Milan], especially when playing at home, we want to make the fans happy with a lot of energy and passion.”he concluded.
