Giroud tests positive for Covid-19, say AC Milan


Olivier Giroud has tested positive for Covid-19, his club AC Milan announced on Thursday as the France forward sits out his country’s World Cup qualifiers.

Giroud tested positive for the virus after France opted not to call him up for World Cup qualifiers this month. Les Bleus stumbled to a 1-1 draw with Bosnia and Herzegovina on Wednesday in the first of their three matches in the international break.

The 34-year-old was dropped by France coach Didier Deschamps despite being the country’s second-highest goalscorer behind Thierry Henry.


He has made a great start in Milan this season after signing from Chelsea, scoring twice in the 4-1 Serie A thumping of Cagliari at the San Siro on Sunday.
