Gianluigi Donnarumma pleaded for Milan supporters not to insult him on his return to San Siro for Italy against Spain, but a banner has already warned he’ll ‘never be welcome here again.’
The goalkeeper left his boyhood club as a free agent over the summer to sign for Paris Saint-Germain.
His refusal to sign a new contract at figures not dissimilar to the ones he ended up accepting in Paris prompted an enraged response from the fans.
Ahead of tomorrow’s Nations League semi-final against Spain, Donnarumma asked publicly for Milan fans not to jeer him upon his return to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
However, a banner appeared over a bridge this evening, signed by Milan ultras, warning there is no chance of a reconciliation.
“Donnarumma, piece of ****,” read the banner. “You will never be welcome in Milano again.”
It’s not entirely new, as during previous contract renegotiation talks that went down to the wire, Milan fans had also hurled abuse at him while playing for the Italy Under-21 side and even waved cash at him as he was playing.
