Donnarumma claims he has ‘no problems’ with Maldini: “I will always be a Milan fan”

By Oliver Fisher -

Gianluigi Donnarumma has declared that he will always be an AC Milan fan despite leaving the club for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

At the beginning of the summer, Milan parted ways with Donnarumma as the goalkeeper decided not to renew his contract. It was a big blow for the Rossoneri to lose an academy product, but ultimately they acted with the club’s best interests at heart and agent Mino Raiola was asking for a very high amount to sign a new contract.

Donnarumma spoke at the press conference to mark the start of the international break for Italy at Appiano Gentile ahead of their Nations League final four games, with his comments relayed by

“Return to San Siro? I’m excited, Milano and AC Milan are an important part of my life. I’m excited, I hope there is nothing. Then we are here in a Nations League semi-final, a competition we care about,” he said.

Some have criticised his decision to move given he has found himself behind Keylor Navas in the pecking order at PSG so far, but Donnarumma insists there is no issue on that front.

“There is no problem. I’m in Paris to play, it’s normal at the beginning there is a bit of these things here. I’m there to play and I’m sure everything will be great, I don’t have any problem for the national team. I’m going on my way, I hope everything can go well.”

Donnarumma also discussed his relationship with Milan’s technical director Paolo Maldini, who was at the front of negotiations over his renewal before deciding to go for Mike Maignan from Lille as his replacement.

“There is no problem with Paolo, I complimented him last night as well. I am pleased to meet my team-mates again, I will talk with him, joking and then there are no problems. We are adults. I am happy with the path that Milan is taking, I will always be a Milan fan. I am happy with Pioli, I often speak to him.”

  1. For an adult “fan” and former milan player its rather hilarious that he seems to be completely oblivious to the fact that he by now propably is the most hated former player ever to wear our shirt. At this point i wouldn’t even care if he joined juventus or inter as it would a great satisfaction to see him getting whistled and harassed at least a couple of times a season. Ive been a milan fan for over 30 years and red and black runs through my blood and honestly i couldnt imagine anything would make me sway from that support but seeing donnarumma playing for the club again might actually make me do that as i have only hatred and ill wishes for this clown.

    1. This is liar absolutely liar if you are Milan fan you can’t go free with out any business so dollarumma I hate you All Milan fan hate you

      1. Yeah pretty much everybody hates him no doubt and im sure there will be no solace or forgiveness from the large majority of the fans as he has already gone into infamy for his behaviour and he hasnt even realized it but guess his bubble one day will burst. Would be in really bad taste seeing him returning down the road when we are even better but doubt it would happen as any sane management would realize the implications of how the fans would react if that actually happened. Anyways we at least got a more technical gifted gk in maignan so its not like we need or miss donnarumma.

  2. He is scared about the reception he will get in San siro.

    This is why he is trying to use emotional blackmail on Milan Fans.

    Pls somebody should tell Dollaruma that Milan fans will respect the Italian National flag and team. There will be not reaction on him this time.

    But when our path crossed again on club games, Dollaruma will see the exten of the love he distroyed in Milan.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  3. At least you left after signing the contract. So you can give a little “economic aid” to a club that you say you’ve been a fan of since you were little. Or maybe, you have a different understanding of the word “fan”, compared to other Milan fans…

  4. We have the best goalkeeper now we are totally happy with.
    Just stop posting Raiola and his puppet’s old shit because it smells bad.

  5. Stop talking about us Gigio. I know you have A LOT of free time at PSG by looking from the bench.

    Feel free to talk about anything but us ok?

    Btw, Maignan is better than you
