On Wednesday, France striker Olivier Giroud extended his contract with AC Milan by one year until 2024, the day after he scored the goal that helped Italy reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

A statement from the Lombard club said: “Milan are proud to announce that Olivier Giroud has renewed his contract with the club.”

The Italian club have confirmed to Agence France Presse that the Frenchman’s new contract expires at the end of next season.

Giroud scored during Milan’s 1-1 draw against Napoli in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final yesterday, Tuesday, to reach the Rossoneri at the expense of his Italian counterpart, winning 2-1 on aggregate, to the semi-finals the first time since 2007 when he won the continental title.

“I’m very happy and proud,” Giroud, 36, told Sky Sports after the contract extension. “It was the perfect way to celebrate last night.”

It is possible that Milan will set up a meeting with their neighbor and rival Inter in the semi-finals, after the latter won 2-0 away against Benfica Portugal, ahead of the second leg scheduled between them later today.
