“In addition to the condemnation banner, innuendo was also written on social media when he saw Donnarumma sitting on the PSG bench.”

1NEWS – After Gianluigi, Antonio Donnarumma also left AC Milan. As it turned out, it sparked the anger of the Rossoneri’s hard-line supporters. Ultras put up a lot of provocative banners that could heat up the Donnarumma family.

Gigi ended his career with the Rossoneri this summer after failing to find an agreement on a new contract offered by the club. The 22-year-old then joined Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, although he has yet to make his debut.

In the first few Ligue 1 matches, Donnarumma was seen sitting on the bench watching Keylor Navas play in goal. The sight turned out to be ammunition for Milan supporters to ridicule.

“With two games on the bench, I think a Serie A club (Milan) will ask if PSG want to loan Donnarumma,” wrote a Milan supporter on Twitter. “Navas is a classy goalkeeper. So why did they sign Donnarumma just to sit on the bench?” wrote another supporter.

“It’s good to see Donnarumma sitting on the bench when his former team-mates play in Sardinia,” another supporter wrote, referring to Milan’s big win against Cagliari.

Donnarumma was a hero to his nation this summer as he saved two penalties in the Euro 2020 final against England to secure the title for the Gli Azzurri. However, Milan could not give a commensurate award so that the goalkeeper could stay at the San Siro.

This move sparked the disappointment of the ultras. They then protested by putting up two banners aimed at the goalkeeper. “Be careful, we don’t forget the traitor”.

The banners were on display ahead of the match between I Rossoneri and Cagliari, which ended in a 4-1 win. “We have not forgotten the traitors, be careful when you return to Milan”. While another wrote: “Donnarumma is ungrateful. You are worse than Leonardo”.

The second banner goes to PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo, who was previously part of the Rossoneri as player, coach and sporting director.

As coach, Leonardo angered the club’s fans by moving to city rivals Inter Milan just six months after leaving the club. His departure from the club’s technical director position saw him return to PSG for the same position in 2019.

However, Donnarumma, whose wages at his former club was at the bottom of the list, refused to accept the offer of a new contract and decided to leave as a free agent at the end of the season. After making his first-team debut at the age of 16 and immediately becoming a regular at the club, Donnarumma made 251 first-team appearances.

Uniquely, the banner had actually been written by the ultras a week since Gianluigi’s brother, Antonio, also ended his four-year stint at the club to join Serie C club Padova.

Antonio has played for Milan since 2017. However, he only played in three games as the coach preferred his younger brother to fill the position. The 31-year-old has spent seven years at the club since the start of his career before moving to various clubs and then returning in 2017 to be part of the Milan squad alongside his younger brother.
