Nice coach Christophe Galtier praised Olivier Giroud after his goal on debut for AC Milan on Saturday.

Giroud scored with his first touch in a Rossoneri shirt, nodding home a free kick from Samu Castillejo in the 1-1 draw.

“We faced an opponent of great quality, even if they were not at their best, a team that finished second in the League," Galiter told Milan TV.

“We improved in intensity and pace compared to the previous friendlies. There was a desire and enthusiasm.

“I'm sorry for the goal, because it's the third one we concede in this pre-season period, but it's not easy to contain a great player like Olivier Giroud, who is a formidable header.

“There are some satisfying points, but also several things to improve. It was important to play at home with our fans and especially against a great team.

“It was an interesting game, obviously far from perfect, but since there's progress from last time."
