Donnarumma highlights issues in final third; looks forward to Atalanta clash

By Isak Möller -

Despite AC Milan’s poor start to the season, a few players have certainly managed to stay consistent performance-wise. Gigio Donnarumma is one of these players, having kept the Rossoneri in the game with crucial saves. 

Of course, this doesn’t come as a surprise since the young goalkeeper has been performing on a world-class level for years now. As a reward for his hard work, he was awarded the Golden Boy award in Italy.

On the sidelines of the event, ‘Gigio’ spoke to Sky Italia (via MilanNews.it) about the Rossoneri’s current situation in the league. On Sunday, they will take on Atalanta away from home, hoping to finish strong ahead of the Christmas break.

“We are doing well. Unfortunately, yesterday, we missed the victory but the team is there and we want to win again. We are ready, we are working well to try to get a great result before Christmas.

“We only missed the goal. There was a game plan, but we need to improve in the final third. Let’s go back to training quietly and improve those things that will lead to victory,” he concluded.

Following the draw against Sassuolo, three points would certainly do them well on Sunday afternoon. However, as we all know, it’s never easy to face Atalanta, especially not on their home turf. A tough task for Pioli’s men, in other words.
