Donnarumma: ‘PSG is incredible, I want to make history here’

Gianluigi Donnarumma expressed his love for Paris Saint-Germain ahead of his second season in the French capital.

The 23-year-old Italian shot stopper had a fairly difficult debut campaign in Paris, being forced to share his starting spot with three-time European champion Keylor Navas. He only made 16 Ligue 1 appearances, and in the Champions League he infamously got caught out with the ball at his feet by Karim Benzema, whose work saw PSG eliminated from the competition.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Donnarumma first discussed his happiness at PSG ahead of his second season.

“I really feel at home here, I feel really good. This club is something incredible, you can’t explain it. This is a family and I’m happy to be here, I want to stay here as long as possible and make history for this club.”

He also spoke about some of the changes following the arrival of Christophe Galtier and his staff.

“We work a lot with the coach, we’re happy with the new staff. He likes the high press, I have to cover spaces well but I have already worked on these concepts so there are no problems. 

“We work together with the defence to be entwined, we want to recover the ball as soon as possible. With the three-man defence it hardly changes, we just need to adjust some things.”

During his debut season in Paris, Donnarumma made 23 appearances across all competitions, for a total of 2070 minutes. He conceded 23 goals and kept nine clean sheets in that time. The Italian shot stopper is contracted to PSG until 2026.

  1. I’m not a Milan fan, I know he chose to leave PSG for money, a lot of players choose to leave for money. For me he made the wrong decision he should’ve stayed at Milan. But what’s done is done now and it worked out for both teams as Milan got a great goalkeeper and Gigio is happy at PSG and now has a starting position finally. I wish him the best mainly because I’m an Azzurri fan and I want to see him at his Azzurri best again.
