Olivier Giroud (37-AC Milan) is full of praise for his French international teammate Marcus Toure (26-Inter Milan).
FCInter1908, a publication dedicated to the news of Italian Serie A club Inter Milan, published an interview with France international and AC Milan striker Olivier Giroud on Monday (April 18). In the interview, Giroud spoke highly of his international teammate and rival Marcus Thurand.
“Marcus is a player who is young, who continues to improve and who is in a phase of growth,” Giroud said in the interview. He arrived at a great club and immediately proved to be a valuable player for Inter with his goals and assists,” Giroud said of Thurand.
“Our system of playing two strikers with Lautaro Martinez (26) suits him well. Their chemistry and the way they complement each other is very obvious and he likes this plan very much. He needs to have another player next to him to showcase his qualities.”
Thurin is the son of French legend Lilien Thurin (51). His father, Lilien, is a defender who played for Juventus and Barcelona, among others. Unlike his father, Thurand is an offensive talent, scoring 44 goals and 29 assists in 134 games for German side Mönchengladbach before joining Inter Milan this summer.
In his first season with the Nerazzurri, Toure has been a revelation. Through 10 games this season, Thurand has three goals and seven assists to lead the team’s offense. He has formed an excellent partnership with Martinez up front and is a key part of Inter’s attack.
Giroud said: “The emergence of young strikers like this is very good for France, he is versatile and I’m sure he 먹튀검증 has the skills of a true striker. We are judged on our efficiency and he knows that a lot is expected from his stats. Also, Thurin knows what is expected of him and what he needs to do to stay at the highest level.”
