Gianluigi Donnarumma has been given a temporary AC Milan tattoo after he was given a hostile reception on his return to the San Siro.
Donnarumma decided not to renew his contract with the Rossoneri in the summer and left on a free transfer to join PSG, something which did not go down well with the fans. This was clearly highlighted during the game at San Siro between Italy and Spain in the Nations League as the 22-year-old was jeered on multiple occasions.
Mino Raiola, the goalkeeper’s agent, wasn’t happy with that and hit back in an interview with il Corriere dello Sport, questioning why Milan didn’t release a statement in support of Donnarumma.
Now, the goalkeeper has been given a temporary Milan tattoo by Le Iene (the Mediaset programme), and after it he was asked to send a message to the Rossoneri supporters in light of his hostile reception: “I will always love them. I will always have a Rossonero heart.”
“There is a bit of disappointment with the whistles. I spent eight years at Milan and it’s always an emotion to come back to San Siro. I grew up here and I remain a supporter of the club. You don’t forget eight years like that… I hope to be better welcomed next time.”
🗣 His message to the fans: "I will always love them. I will always have a Rossonero heart."
