Milan legend Alessandro Costacurta has hit out at Gianluigi Donnarumma’s attitude as the soap opera regarding his renewal continues.
The days are ticking by and the situation surrounding the saga is getting more and more intense as Donnarumma now has less than 90 days left on his current deal, making him free to sign with another club even despite the fact that almost all major sources have claimed he wishes to stay and play in the Champions League with Milan.
He continues to be decisive on the pitch, and made a couple of smart saves during yesterday’s 3-1 win over Parma including an excellent reaction double stop, but now attention has once again turned to his future.
One man who is not happy with the way that Donnarumma is conducting himself is Billy Costacurta, who spent over twenty years with Milan between 1986 and 2007 and knows all about what loyalty means.
“I can’t enter his head because we are different. We used to have agents too, good agents. We decided to stay at Milan without overthinking about it,” Costacurta told Sky (via Football Italia).
“We probably earned less than what we could, but we stayed at Milan. I don’t think Milan can raise their offer, as Maldini said, they have a budget to respect. So, if they find an agreement, they’ll continue together, otherwise no.
“Sincerely, the situation is very clear. I don’t like what Raiola is doing, but who is responsible for this situation? He kisses the shirt, but then it takes so long to sign a contract extension. Why does he kiss the shirt? It’s annoying.
“I may be old-fashioned, but why does he kiss the shirt? Maybe he will also kiss the shirt of his next club. Perhaps I am not intelligent enough, I’d like to see fewer kisses and more concrete actions.”
