Donnarumma fears hostile reception from Milan fans
Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma fears a hostile reception from Milan fans when he returns to the San Siro for the Nations League semi-final against Spain. Donnarumma joined Paris Saint-Germain last July after six seasons with AC Milan, during which he played 215 league matches. And the media reported that some Milan fans have not yet forgiven the 22-year-old goalkeeper for his departure from the club and expected Milan fans to boo Donnarumma at San Siro during the match against Spain.
Donnarumma said in a press conference: “I am not happy to return to San Siro. Milan and the Italian city were an important part of my career. I’m excited to be back at the San Siro and I hope the fans don’t put anything negative on me. I will always love Milan. I did my best with Milan.
I will feel sorry and sad if anything negative happens because we are playing a very important Nations League semi-final and I hope the fans will support us. We came to play the semi-finals of the Nations League, which is a competition that we are very interested in.
Donnarumma participated mainly in three of the nine matches that Paris Saint-Germain played in the French league this season, but he denied the existence of any disputes with his new club, as well as any impact on his level with the national team due to the lack of participation with his club.
Donnarumma added: No problem. She moved to Paris in order to play. My lack of participation is normal at first. I am sure everything will go great. There is also no problem with the national team. Hope all goes well
