Gigio Donnarumma left AC Milan on a free transfer in the summer of 2021 and there’s still bad blood between him and the fans. The Curva Sud have even prepared custom dollar bills for the goalkeeper tonight.
When the goalkeeper left the Rossoneri for free, many fans were upset with his decision to stall the renewal talks, forcing Paolo Maldini to sign Mike Maignan instead. During that summer, he was infamously showered with dollar bills during a game with the Italian U21 side.
Today, there could be something similar at San Siro as Curva Sud have printed custom dollar bills with Donnarumma’s face on them, as well as the text ‘Dollarumma’ and ‘Mercenary’. The bills were unveiled on their Instagram page with the following message:
“Today, outside the gates, you will find the fanzine with a wad of dollars to give him [Donnarumma] a worthy welcome back. There are instructions included on how the dollar bills will be used…
“We will collect a small donation to be allocated to a football school, so that people without values like this unworthy man will never grow up again. Today everything goes to create a hellish climate” they wrote.
