Comfortable since his arrival in Paris this summer, Gianluigi Donnarumma experienced a complicated return to Milan on Wednesday with the Italian selection.
A few banners distributed in Milan, and in particular around San Siro, from Tuesday, had set the tone for the return of Gianluigi Donnarumma at home, in the Rossoneri’s lair. ” You will never be welcome in Milan again », Could we read on one of them. Strong, violent and definitive words, for a hostile atmosphere that the interested party was able to taste this Wednesday evening while Italy faced spain in the semifinals of the League of Nations.
Copiously whistled to each of his balloons touched by the Lombard public, the porter of the PSG was able to measure that his summer departure was always seen as a betrayal by the tifosi of AC Milan. An icy welcome that obviously did not help the last rampart to sublimate. Witness this hand fault, to say the least surprising at the start of the game, on a tense shot from Marcos Alonso finally pushed back by the post and saved on the goal line by Leonardo Bonucci (19e).
Mancini “sorry” for Donnarumma
Two minutes earlier, Gianluigi Donnarumma had bowed out to Ferran Torres for the opening of the Roja score (0-1, 17e). He will admit defeat a second time just before the break, still against Torres and on an offering delivered by Mikel Oyarzabal (0-2, 45e+1). « The whistles against Donnarumma ? I’m in really sorry… ”, Says the coach of the Nazionale Roberto Mancini after the meeting. And Italy to lose there for the first time in more than three years, after 37 outings without a setback.
