Gianluigi Donnarumma addressed the media after announcing that he would be renewing his AC Milan contract until 2021.
He was joined by Milan directors Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli at Casa Milan, as well as his brother Antonio Donnarumma who has also joined, following Tuesday’s announcement regarding the new deal.
“I am very happy and honoured to be at Milan. In my mind I never had any kind of doubts,” the 18-year-old stated.
“I am just sorry for the fans, I am very proud to be at Milan.”
Fassone said: “It’s difficult to take some crucial decisions at the age of 18 and we all have gone through this.
“We are your family, everything will be forgotten.”
Mirabelli also discussed the signing of Gigio’s brother: “I immediately had the idea of bringing Antonio Donnarumma, there was a technical evaluation of his signing.”
