Football Italy – Donnarumma insulted, he cries

Gianluigi Donnarumma has just experienced two huge sporting disappointments with PSG then with Italy. On the Milan side, if we are not openly rejoicing, we still laugh at the despair of the former AC Milan goalkeeper.

Hero of the last Euro, Gianluigi Donnarumma probably hoped to have calmed a little the anger of certain Italian supporters, mainly Milanese, who do not forgive him for having left the Rossoneri freely to join Paris Saint-Germain, making a considered choice on the side of San Siro as being solely driven by money more than sports. But in the space of a few weeks, the ground crumbled under the feet of the Italian goalkeeper, first on the side of Santiago-Bernabeu where his huge ball against Karim Benzema contributed to the collapse of PSG in Champions League, then in Palermo where he failed to stop a long shot that gave victory in North Macedonia and eliminated Italy in the quest for a ticket to the World Cup in Qatar. And it all earned some more than harsh criticism of the 23-year-old goalkeeper. For Cristiano Ruiu, journalist of Calcio Mercato, all this is starting to seriously overstep the bounds and these attacks are to cry.

Donnarumma alone guilty for Italy

Returning to the incessant attacks against Gianluidi Donnarumma, the journalist raises his voice and is offended by this permanent bashing against the doorman of Italy and PSG. ” In recent months I’ve seen people cheering every time Donnarumma was on the PSG bench in favor of Keylor Navas, I’ve seen people celebrate the French’s elimination against Real Madrid as if it were the final of the Mondial in Berlin in 2006. How sad. Admittedly, Gigio “sleeps” on the Macedonian player’s shot from outside the area, but isn’t it strange to arrive at the 92nd on this score of 0 to 0? Surely Donnarumma is light in touch with Benzema at the Bernabeu, but for any other team and for any other goalkeeper there would have been a scandal and the logic of another pro-Madrid refereeing. But no. Everything about Donnarumma. As if he was guilty of everything, even the Covid and the war in Ukraine. So I ask, what has Donnarumma done wrong in the last 12 months (…) He chose, as a professional, to go to one of the richest clubs in football current who every year tries to win the Champions League. Overall, he did the same as the best players of the 80s, 90s and 2000s, who chose to come to Milan or other Italian teams, when the Italian league was the richest and most competitive in the world ( …) After that, Donnarumma was the only representative of the Rossoneri at Euro 2020. He was awarded as the best player of the tournament, which is unique for a goalkeeper. He coached Italy to the title victory by saving the penalty shootout against Spain and England, because let’s remember that Italy, in the 120 minutes, won neither the semi-final nor the final . All at 22. At that age, Buffon was still playing for Parma and was not even a starter in the national team (…) Donnarumma passes like an idiot after saving the penalty shootout in the semi-finals and final? Even Buffon didn’t even save a penalty in the 2006 World Cup final. But Donnarumma was called a crook. And it must necessarily pass as such… “, takes offense Cristiano Ruiu, who no longer sees that the goalkeeper focuses on his only person all the rage of a country which will still miss the World Cup.

For his part, the Italian international goalkeeper from Paris Saint-Germain briefly broke his silence after the brutal knockout against Macedonia. ” We wanted to participate in the World Cup, to experience the extraordinary emotions that these competitions can give, to give a smile to the Italians who accompanied us a few months ago to conquer Europe. Unfortunately it won’t be like that, we are very disappointed and we know how all Italians are all like us. But we also know that in football, as in life, we have to look ahead and get back into the game. Our task is to bring the national team back to where it deserves and to build from today, step by stage, a winning future. Forza Azzurri “, only indicated, via his Instagram account, a Gianluigi Donnarumma, who will now have to digest all this.
