Hero in his country.
Like the biggest stars of the ball, Olivier Giroud was also entitled to an XXL poster on his land. This was revealed this Friday, in Froges in Isère, where we see the Blues striker looking at the sky, next to the following inscription: « Score goals and memories. Froges is proud of its champion Olivier Giroud, top scorer in the history of Les Bleus. » The fresco will remain on this wall for one year, with two renewable years.
Thank you to the town hall of Froges for its invitation, in the presence of Olivier’s family, to the inauguration of the giant fresco in honor of@_OlivierGiroud_ .

« When the idea came to me, it was Zinédine Zidane’s poster in Marseille in 1998 that I was referring to. For us it was natural, he is our champion, he is the best striker in the world”, explains Julien Di Frenza, deputy in charge of sports at the town hall of Froges and former classmate of the player, to France Blue Isere. The wall in question also belongs to the Giroud family, the building having even been built by the attacker’s grandfather. Present on site this Friday, Romain, Olivier’s brother, also informed him of the creation of this fresco. «I got him on the phone, there was the whole assembly with the mayor, the elected officials and all the people who took part in this operation. He is very moved, very proud, very touched also by the place attributed to him by the common, “says the brother.
And more or less, he too could have had his head displayed on the walls of his city.
