Donnarumma came to the San Siro with the status of goalkeeper of the Italian national team. However, that doesn’t seem to stop AC Milan fans from giving a ‘special’ welcome to the goalkeeper who joined PSG at the start of the 2021/2022 season.
Milan fans have a bad relationship with Donnarumma. And, Italy’s match against Spain was held at the San Siro. So, Donnarumma also received a welcome from Milan fans.
Before the match, Milan fans put up mocking banners aimed at Donnarumma in several corners of the city. One of them was made by Ultras Curva Sud Milan which reads: Donnarumma, damn it. You will never be welcome again in Milan.

“It certainly wouldn’t please him, just as it wouldn’t please us. Gigio did well,” said Mancini.
“Obviously, it’s disappointing, because this is an Italian game, it’s not a club. They could have ruled it out for one game, maybe they’ll do it in the PSG-Milan duel, because Italy should be above everything,” continued Mancini.
