Will he put on the hero’s costume? Reply in a few hours. Indeed, all fans of the France team were shocked and saddened when they learned of the package of the last Ballon d’Or, Karim Benzema. To compensate for his absence during this 2022 World Cup, Didier Deschamps is therefore counting on Olivier Giroud, who is still performing in clubs and in particular at AC Milan, the team for which he has been playing since his departure from Chelsea. The tricolor striker remains an essential part of his team and could allow Mbappé and Dembélé to shine from the first match of the group stage of the competition.
At 36, Olivier Giroud may be playing his last major international competition and could retire shortly. A successful career with many trophies. In particular a title of champion of France with Montpellier, while PSG was the big favorite, a championship in Italy or even a Europa League with Chelsea. Without forgetting the supreme title, that of world champion with the Blues in 2018.
Despite this record which can make you dizzy, the French striker has always known how to keep his feet on the ground and keep his spirits up even in bad times. If Olivier Giroud was able to manage these complicated periods as well as possible, it is also because he is very well supported in everyday life. In a relationship with Jennifer, the two are the happy parents of four children who fill them with happiness. Children that the sportsman always keeps “near him”, even when he evolves on the ground.
Moreover, during a visit to Raw, the French international recalled how long Jennifer had made him happy. When he married at the age of 24, Olivier Giroud met his muse several years earlier. The two crossed paths in high school before never letting go again. A beautiful story which, we hope, will also be beautiful with the Blues during this 2022 World Cup.
