Raiola: ‘Milan fans should apologise’

by | Sep 4, 2017 12:44

Mino Raiola is “waiting for an apology” from Milan fans after “we satisfied Gigio Donnarumma’s desire to stay”.

The goalkeeper looked set to leave the Rossoneri this summer, as he initially rejected their offer of a new contract.

That drew fury from the fans, many of whom put the blame squarely on his agent, but the 18-year-old later performed a u-turn and signed a new deal.

“We satisfied Donnarumma’s desire to stay,” Raiola said on Radio Crc.

Mino Raiola is “waiting for an apology” from Milan fans after “we satisfied Gigio Donnarumma’s desire to stay”.

The goalkeeper looked set to leave the Rossoneri this summer, as he initially rejected their offer of a new contract.

That drew fury from the fans, many of whom put the blame squarely on his agent, but the 18-year-old later performed a u-turn and signed a new deal.

“We satisfied Donnarumma’s desire to stay,” Raiola said on Radio Crc.

“I’m waiting for an apology from fans and journalists. It’s easy moralise about others, we never demanded the captain’s armband, we were offered it.

“We’re the only country where fans think they run the clubs, abroad you don’t get these banners against the fans and the clubs.

“We need to get rid of this culture of fear of the fans.”

Raiola also turned his famously sharp tongue on Italy CT Giampiero Ventura, after the national team lost 3-0 to Spain on Saturday.

“I don’t think we have fewer champions than Spain, but if you play volleyball against them then it’s normal there’s nothing you can do.

“If you put Isco and [Marco] Asensio in the Italy team after 20 minutes, [Lorenzo] Insigne and [Marco] Verratti are not at all inferior from them. The mistake was from a tactical point of view.

“We’re talking about a CT who says he wants to continue on this path, never mind getting everything wrong. What are we talking about?

“We need to play the modern football Spain and Germany play, but don’t talk about quality one-on-one because in terms of players we’re on the same level.”
