Calhanoglu started in the middle of the park for Inter against Milan in tonight’s derby della Madonnina.

It is his first game against the Rossoneri since he joined Inter on a free transfer in the summer.
On paper, Milan are at home tonight, so most fans at San Siro support the Rossoneri.
Since the very beginning of the game, they targeted their former idol, giving him the same treatment as Gigio Donnarumma.
In October, Donnarumma returned to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza for a Nations League semi-final between Italy and Spain.
Despite playing with the Azzurri, Milan fans booed their former goalkeeper, who, just like Calhanoglu, had left the Rossoneri at the end of his contract in the summer.
While Donnarumma seemed affected by boos from Milan fans, Calhanoglu didn’t lose his cool and converted a spot-kick in the first half, celebrating controversially.
The Turkish star stared at Milan’s Curva Sud, putting his hands back to the ears. One more iconic moment in the history of the Milan derby.
