Up until a few weeks ago he was liked and admired by most of his compatriots. Now, he is… cursed by AC Milan fans, and considered ‘greedy’ by many supporters and other teams. It’s not his fault though that he turned down Milan, if we are to believe his agent.
The situation had become too violent and hostile, so there was no way out. We took a decision that we didn’t want to take. It was nothing to do with money. We were threatened. Donnarumma’s family was threatened, both with not playing anymore and threatened with death. You can’t keep a player by threatening him
Mino Raiola told reporters, blaming Milan for practically forcing Gianluigi Donnarumma to reject their renewal offer.
Now there is a genuine risk he could miss a year. His quality makes that improbable, but this is already on the verge of bullying. We never even got to talk about money or release clauses, because we were not allowed to get that far
Donnarumma‘s agent added, presenting his client as the victim in this whole case.
Milan, through their sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli, cleared out that the 18-year-old goalkeeper is not going to be sold this summer, despite the fact that he’s out of contract in 12 months from now.
It’s the coach who makes the decisions. He says who will make the bench or sit in the stands
he told Sportitalia, when asked if Donnarumma will spend next season playing, or watching from outside, put in the fridge.
