Donnarumma: “Our objective is fourth place; I wish Higuain all the best”

By Oliver Fisher -

Gianluigi Donnarumma has insisted that AC Milan’s target for this season is to finish fourth in the table after Monday’s 2-0 win at Genoa.

The young goalkeeper was in inspired form once again at the Marassi, pulling off a number of smart saves to rack up his 40th clean sheet for the club in Serie A.

“The Supercoppa defeat hurt, but our objective is fourth place and we are up there. Now let’s focus on the next match, this one’s in the bag,” Donnarumma told Sky Sport Italia.

“It wasn’t a great start, but we suffered all together and that is the most important thing. We fought hard and our quality emerged eventually to win a very difficult match.”

Higuain was dropped for the game, but Donnarumma gave the Argentine his best wishes ahead of his reported move to Chelsea.

“If Higuain made this choice, there must be reasons, but he is a friend and I wish him all the best.

“There’s a long way to go, but we’ll do everything we can to achieve our objectives and keep taking it one game at a time.

“I am a big Napoli fan, it’s my city and I am happy they are doing well…but we hope to beat them in Serie A and the Coppa Italia!”
