The titular goalkeeper of the Italian selection was entitled to severe whistles on Sunday when he left the field against Wales.
Gianluigi Donnarumma made a very attractive start to the Euro, and he is also the architect of the series of 11 consecutive matches without a single goal taken by Squadra Azzurra. Despite this, the future goalkeeper of PSG is not unanimous in his country. This is what we saw on Sunday during the match of La Nazionale against Wales (1-0), on the occasion of the third day of the group stage.
The Italian public does not forgive Donnarumma
While we were playing the last minutes of the game, Donnarumma was called upon to give way to Salvatore Sirigu for the needs of a turnover. Leaving the lawn, the young goalkeeper was accompanied by violent whistles from the stands. An incomprehensible public reaction given the performance it displays. The transalpine press explained this treatment by the fact that the person concerned did not want to extend his contract with AC Milan. Others believe that it is because he is negotiating his future in the middle of a tournament with his country, since his engagement with Paris should be sealed on Monday following a medical examination.
Intractable in his cage, Donnarumma certainly did not expect this from his own tifosi. However, the ex-Rossonerro made sure that this episode did not spoil the joy of a perfectly successful first round. Upon joining the bench, he was seen smiling and joking with his teammates. Perhaps he reserves his answer on the ground?
