Former coach Arrigo Sacchi has told people that they should not be surprised by the fact Gianluigi Donnarumma was booed on his return to 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 and that was clearly highlighted during the game at San Siro between Italy and Spain.
Mino Raiola, the goalkeeper’s agent, wasn’t happy with that and hit back in an interview with il Corriere dello Sport. He even questioned why Milan didn’t release a statement in support of Donnarumma, and the war of words has now continued.
Sacchi was one of the guests of honor at the Trento Sport Festival, sponsored by La Gazzetta dello Sport, and he was asked for his thoughts on the rather hostile reception that Donnarumma got back in Milano.
“I have never jeered anyone in my life, but at times people do go looking for these insults,” he said (via FootballItalia).
“Evidently, there was a betrayal. In football and in everyday life, betrayal has to be repaid in kind. So let’s not be shocked by a few jeers.”
