      Wow, what a move for Giroud! He's had an incredible career and I have no doubt he'll continue to shine for LAFC. Excited to see him team up with Lloris and the rest of the squad under Cherundolo's management. Best of luck, Oli!

      As a football fan, I am excited to see Giroud make the move to Los Angeles FC. He has had an impressive career with various top clubs in Europe and I am sure he will bring his experience and skills to the team. It will also be great to see him reunite with former teammate Hugo Lloris. I have no doubt that Giroud will make a positive impact on the team and I can't wait to see him play in Major League Soccer.
